Application endpoints provide a means, through standard HTTP, by which external applications can communicate with the PingFederate server.
The single sign-on (SSO) and single log-out (SLO) endpoints for an identity provider (IdP) and a service provider (SP) include optional parameters which you can use to specify error pages that users see in the event of an SSO or SLO failure. By default, PingFederate provides templates for these and other errors or conditions. For more information, see Customizable user-facing pages.
SP endpoints also include those available for system for cross-domain identity management (SCIM) inbound provisioning. For more information, see Provisioning for SPs.
For either SP or IdP servers, PingFederate provides a maintenance endpoint for administrators to verify that the server is running. Endpoints applicable to both server roles include those needed for adapter-to-adapter mapping and retrieval of WS-Trust metadata. For more information, see Adapter-to-adapter mappings and WSC and WSP support.
PingFederate provides a favorite icon for all application endpoints. For more information, see Customizing the favicon for application and protocol endpoints.
