Configure the ID DataWeb IdP Adapter to determine how PingFederate communicates with the ID DataWeb API.

  1. In the PingFederate administrative console, create a new IdP adapter instance:
    1. Go to Authentication > Integration > IdP Adapters and click Create New Instance.
  2. On the Type tab, set the basic adapter instance attributes.
    1. In the Instance Name field, enter a name for the adapter instance.
    2. In the Instance ID field, enter a unique identifier for the adapter instance.
    3. In the Type list, select ID DataWeb IdP Adapter. Click Next.
  3. Optional: On the IdP Adapter tab, in the Additional Verification Attributes section, configure additional attributes to send to ID DataWeb with the user data.
    1. Click Add a new row to 'Additional Verification Attributes'.
    2. In the Incoming Attribute Name field, enter the name of an attribute from any authentication source that appears earlier in your PingFederate authentication policy than the ID DataWeb IdP Adapter.
    3. From the ID DataWeb User Attribute list, select the ID DataWeb attribute that you want to populate.
    Note: The ID DataWeb IdP Adapter allows you to pass custom attributes to ID DataWeb. The name and value of the attribute are determined by the Local Attribute column. For example, if you enter officeName in the Local Attribute column, ID DataWeb receives an attribute with the following name and value format: {...officeName: headquarters...}.
