PingFederate clients can gain access to the administrative API endpoint by providing an OAuth 2.0 access token. The <pf_install>/pingfederate/bin/oauth2.properties file contains settings that allow you to configure information required to interact with the authorization server as a client.
Set the pf.admin.api.authentication value in
file, change property values as needed. For instructions and additional
information, see the comments in the file.
Remember to assign at least one of the PingFederate administrative roles, as indicated in the properties file. For information about permissions attached to the PingFederate roles, see the PingFederate User Access Control table in Configure access to the administrative API.
In a clustered PingFederate environment, you only need to modify run.properties and oauth2.properties on the console node.
