Note: You can follow these steps to create a new SP connection, or you can modify an existing connection.

SSO isn't required for provisioning. If you only want to use the Slack Provisioner for provisioning, skip these steps.

    • For PingFederate 10.1 or later: go to Applications > Integration > SP Connections. Click Create Connection.
    • For PingFederate 10.0 or earlier: go to Identity Provider > SP Connections. Click Create Connection.
  2. Configure the basic connection details with the Slack quick connection template.
    1. On the Connection Template tab, select Use a template for this connection.
    2. From the Connection Template list, select Slack Provisioner.
    3. On the Metadata File row, select the saml-metadata.xml file that you saved in Preparing your SAML metadata file. Click Next.
    4. On the Connection Type tab select Browser SSO Profiles. Click Next.
