The configcopy tool can migrate your configurations, such as from a test environment to production. It can also manage certificates for the target server.


As of PingFederate 10.2, the configcopy tool has been deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

The command-line utility, configcopy, in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/bin directory, uses PingFederate's built-in Connection Management Service in conjunction with an internal Web Service to export and import connections and other configurations, and to obtain lists. For more information, see Connection Management Services.


The Connection Management Service must be activated for both the source and target servers before you can use the configcopy tool. For more information, see Configuring service authentication.


For security reasons, you should disable the Connection Management Service whenever it is not in use.
