The first time you access the PingFederate administrative console and after you have accepted the subscription agreement, you see two choices on how to proceed:
- Yes, Connect to PingOne for Enterprise
- No, Set Up Without PingOne for Enterprise
To continue setting up PingFederate, select No, Set Up Without PingOne for Enterprise. Click Next.
Selecting Yes, Connect to PingOne for Enterprise takes you to the setup for PingFederate Bridge. PingFederate Bridge is a light-weight version of PingFederate that is meant for use primarily by new customers who want to quickly and easily configure user authentication from an on-premise directory to PingOne for Enterprise in the cloud. For information about setting up and using PingFederate Bridge, see the associated documentation starting with Introduction to PingFederate Bridge.
