You can choose the type of Password Credential Validator (PCV) that you want to use in PingFederate. You must also specify the PCV's name, ID, and whether it uses a parent instance.

Available PCV types are determined by plug-in .jar files loaded in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/server/default/deploy directory. Several validator plugins are bundled with PingFederate. You can add other plugins from the Ping Identity Downloads website.

  1. On the Type tab, enter a name and an ID for the instance.
  2. Select the type of the PCV from the Type list.
  3. Optional: Select a Parent Instance from the list.
    Use this option when creating an instance that is similar to an existing one. The child instance inherits the configuration of its parent. You can also override one or more settings during the setup. Select the Override ... check box and make the adjustments as needed in one or more subsequent windows.
