Ping Identity offers a catalog of connectors that provide provisioning capabilities to software as a service (SaaS) providers. The connectors act as mediators to handle transactions safely and securely. The PingID Connector offers profile management solutions to multiple directory types, such as LDAP, Active Directory (AD), and PingDirectory.

  3. The connector pulls the marked record from the intermediary database and performs the necessary Read (Get), Update, or Delete operation against the PingID record. These changes are reflected in the PingOne admin portal.
