Use a build utility to add directories, create deployment descriptors, and create a .jarfile to build and deploy your plugins with PingFederate.
To build your project with another build utility, you must create the deployment descriptors for each of your plugins. The deployment descriptor files allow PingFederate to discover your plugins. Once this is complete, use the build tool to create a .jar file and deploy it within the appropriate directory.
Add a new directory called PF-INF into your project. This
directory must be at the root of your .jar file, similar to
PF-INF, add an appropriate text file for each type of plugin you created:
Plugin type File name IdP Adapter idp-authn-adapters SP Adapter sp-authn-adapters Custom Data Source custom-drivers Token Processor token-processors Token Generator token-generators Authentication Selector authentication-selectors Password Credential Validator password-credential-validators Identity Store Provisioner identity-store-provisioners CIBA Authenticator oob-auth-plugins Notification Publisher notification-sender
- In each text file added, specify the fully-qualified class name of each plugin that implements the corresponding plugin interface. Place each class name on a separate line.
- To create a .jar, archive the compiled class files along with the deployment descriptors using your build tool. The deployment descriptors must be in the PF-INF directory, located at the root of the .jar file.
- To deploy your plugin, copy the .jar file and any third-party .jar files into the <pf_install>/pingfederate/server/default/deploy directory of the PingFederate installation.
