To use PingFederate for provisioning, configure an external datastore and enable outbound provisioning.
Configure the external datastore that PingFederate will use as the source of
user data. For instructions, see Adding a new datastore
in the PingFederate documentation.
Attention: When targeting users and groups for provisioning, exclude the user account that you will use to administer users in your connection to Salesforce. This prevents the PingFederate provisioning engine from interfering with the account that provisions users and groups.
Do one of the following:
- For PingFederate 10.1 or later: go to .
- For PingFederate 10.0 or earlier:
- Go to .
- Select Enable Identity Provider IdP Role and Support the Following.
- Select Outbound Provisioning. Click Next.
On the Outbound Provisioning tab, select the
PingFederate internal datastore. Click Save.
For help, see Configuring outbound provisioning settings in the PingFederate documentation.
