You can use the PingFederate administrative console as a service provider (SP) to configure local application-integration information and to manage connections to your identity provider (IdP)-partner sites.
Only one connection is needed per partner, even if integrating more than one web application.
While you define your entity ID on the Federation Info tab of the Protocol Settings window, you can identify your organization differently through the use of virtual server IDs on a per-connection basis. For more information, see Multiple virtual server IDs.
This topic applies to configuration settings needed for browser-based single sign-on (SSO). Although this information also applies to WS-Trust security token service (STS), if you are using PingFederate exclusively as an STS, start with WS-Trust STS configuration.
