On the Contract Fulfillment tab, map authentication source values into persistent grants.

The USER_KEY attribute is the identifier of the persistent grants. The USER_NAME attribute presents the name shown to the resource owner on OAuth user-facing pages. If extended attributes are defined in System > OAuth Settings > Authorization Server Settings, configure a mapping for each attribute.

Important:

The USER_KEY attribute values must be unique across all end users because the USER_KEY attribute is the user identifier to store and to retrieve persistent grants. For example, if you are configuring an OAuth Attribute Mapping configuration on a SAML 2.0 IdP connection and the SAML_SUBJECT attribute uniquely identifies all end users, you can map the SAML_SUBJECT attribute to the USER_KEY attribute.

  1. For each attribute, select a source from the list and then choose or enter a value.
    • AccountLink

      When selected, the Value list is populated with Local User ID. You can map Local User ID to an attribute that represents the user identifier, such as the USER_KEY attribute. This source appears only if you have elected to use account linking for a target session on the Identity Mapping window.

    • Assertion or Provider Claims

      When selected, the Value list is populated with attributes from the SSO token. Select the desired attribute from the list.

      For example, to map the value of SAML_SUBJECT from a SAML assertion as the value of the USER_KEY user identifier on the contract, select Assertion from the Source list and SAML_SUBJECT from the Value list.

    • Context

      When selected, the Value list populates with the available context of the transaction. Select the desired context from the list.

      Note:

      As the HTTP Request context value is retrieved as a Java object rather than text, use OGNL expressions to evaluate and return values.

      Note:

      If you are configuring an OAuth Attribute Mapping configuration and have added PERSISTENT_GRANT_LIFETIME as an extended attribute in the Authorization Server Settings window, you can set the lifetime of persistent grants based on the outcome of attribute mapping expressions or the per-client Persistent Grants Max Lifetime setting.

      • To set lifetime based on the per-client Persistent Grants Max Lifetime setting, select Context from the Source list and Default Persistent Grant Lifetime from the Value list.
      • To set lifetime based on the outcome of attribute mapping expressions, select Expression as the source and enter an OGNL expression in the Value field.

        If the expression returns a positive integer, the value represents the lifetime of the persistent grant in minutes.

        If the expression returns the integer 0, PingFederate does not store the grant and does not issue a refresh token.

        If the expression returns any other value, PingFederate sets the lifetime of the persistent grant based on the per-client Persistent Grants Max Lifetime setting.

      • To set a static lifetime, select Text from the Source list and enter a static value in the Value field.

        This is suitable for testing purposes, or cases where the persistent grant lifetime must always be set to a specific value.

    • Extended Client Metadata

      Values are returned from the client record.

    • LDAP, JDBC, or Other

      When selected, the Value list is populated with attributes selected from the datastore. Select the desired attribute from the list.

    • Expression

      When enabled, this option provides more complex mapping capabilities, such as transforming incoming values into different formats. Select Expression from the Source list, click Edit under Actions, and compose your OGNL expressions. All variables available for text entries are also available for expressions. For more information, see Text.

      Expressions are not enabled by default. For more information about enabling and editing OGNL expressions, see Attribute mapping expressions.

    • No Mapping

      When selected, no value selection is necessary.

    • Text

      When selected, the text you enter is used at runtime. You can mix text with references to any of the values from the SSO token, using the ${attribute} syntax.

      When applicable, you can also enter values from your datastore using the ${ds.attribute} syntax, where attribute is any attribute that you have selected from the datastore.

      Tip:

      You can reference attribute values in the form of ${attributeName:-defaultValue}. The default value is optional. When specified, it is used at runtime if the attribute value is not available. Do not use ${ and } in the default value.
