A SAML profile is the message-interchange scenario that you and your federation partner have agreed to use. SAML binding, by contrast, is the transport protocol of SAML messages.
On the SAML Profiles tab, select one or more SAML 2.0 profiles for your IdP Browser SSO configuration.
The SAML Profiles tab is not shown for SAML 1.x connections because identity provider (IdP) single sign-on (SSO) is assumed, single logout (SLO) profiles are not supported, and the server supports the "destination-first" (SP-initiated) profile SSO automatically. This window is also not presented for WS-Federation connections because profile selection is not required.
When configuring a local loopback connection, in which one PingFederate instance is both the identity provider and the service provider, disable the IdP-Initiated SLO and SP-Initiated SLO options on the Browser SSO window's SAML Profiles tab. These options determine whether SAML logout requests should be sent to the partner during the SLO flow. Those requests aren't necessary and can cause unexpected behavior when the partner connection exists locally. All local sessions for loopback connections are terminated during the SLO flow without the need to send SAML requests.
For SAML 2.0, PingFederate supports all IdP- and SP-initiated SSO and SLO profiles. For more information on typical SSO and SLO profile configurations, including illustrations, see SAML 2.0 profiles.
