The integration of local applications with PingFederate is the essential "first-mile" configuration that allows end-users to access protected resources across domains. This process is facilitated through the use of application-integration kits and a robust Software Development Kit (see SSO integration kits and adapters).

Under Integration on the Identity Provider menu, you configure instances of the IdP adapters (for example, the HTML Form Adapter) that PingFederate needs to interact with applications or access-management systems used to authenticate users at your site. For authentication sources and selectors that are capable of delegating end-user interactions to external web applications, you may create authentication applications to represent them. You can also set a Default URL to which users may be directed during SLO, and you can look up system endpoints that application developers at your site need to access PingFederate's SSO/SLO services.


If your PingFederate configuration enables the WS-Trust STS, the selections under Integration also include menu items for configuring plugin Token Processors and optionally STS Request Parameters (see IdP configuration for STS).
