Use the Applications page to add an application to be managed by PingOne. For information about the different types of applications, see Applications.


Some application settings can only be configured after the application is created. For more information, see Editing an application.

PingOne supports the following application types:

  • SAML
  • OIDC
  • Native
  • Single page
  • Device authorization
  • Worker
  1. Go to Applications > Applications.
  2. Click the + icon.
  3. Create the application profile by entering the following:
    • Application name: A unique identifier for the application.
    • Description (optional): A brief characterization of the application.
    • Icon (optional): A graphic representation of the application. Use a file up to 1MB in JPG, JPEG, GIF, or PNG format.
  4. Choose the Application Type. For more information, see Applications.

    You can also choose Application Catalog to use a templated integration.

  5. If you're creating a SAML Application, click Configure, and then specify the details of the connection between the application and PingOne.

    You can enter the values manually, or import them from a file or URL.

    • Import the configuration details from an XML metadata file. Select Import Metadata. Click Select a File and then select an XML metadata file on your file system. Click Open.

      The configuration values are populated based on the information in the metadata file.


      If the metadata file does not specify all the configuration values, you must enter the missing values manually.

    • Import the configuration details from a metadata URL. Select Import from URL. Enter the URL and then click Import.

      The URL must be a valid absolute URL.

      The configuration values are populated based on the information from the URL.

    • Enter the configuration details manually. In the ACS URLs field, enter the Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URLs. You must specify at least one URL, and the first URL in the list is used as the default.

      In the Entity ID field, enter the service provider entity ID used to look up the application. The Entity ID is a required property and is unique within the environment.

  6. Click Save.

After the application is created, you can edit the application settings, configure application policies, and control application access. For more information, see Editing an application, Applying authentication policies to an application, and Application access control.
