Metadata file

Some target services allow you to import a SAML metadata file that contains some of the information below. For help exporting your metadata file, see Metadata export in the PingFederate documentation.

SAML endpoint

The PingFederate SAML endpoint is:

Identity provider issuer

This is SAML 2.0 Entity ID from PingFederate, which can be found under the Server Settings page. For more information, see Specifying federation information.

Tip: In order to override SAML 2.0 Entity ID on the Server Settings page for your SP Connection, navigate to the General Info screen to add a Virtual Server ID. This value will be sent as the SAML Issuer URL.

Signing certificate

This is the public signing certificate that PingFederate uses to sign the SAML assertion. For help exporting your certificate, see Managing digital signing certificates and decryption keys.
