Select External Link to provision users to an external user store. PingOne will direct users to the Registration Target URL for registration, but PingOne will still be used for authentication.
- Require confirmation of user information. If registration is enabled, requires end users to confirm the data that is linked with the third-party identity provider. The end user will have an opportunity to edit the information that the third-party identity provider shares with PingOne, such as user name, email address, first name, and last name.

- To prevent users from signing in if their PingOne user account is locked, select Block authentication of locked user accounts from Presented Identity Providers. If you leave this option cleared, then users can sign on with their configured identity provider credentials, but not their PingOne credentials.
