With IdP-initiated SSO, single sign-on is initiated by the IdP rather than by PingOne.


PingOne assigns a unique IdP metadata URL for each application in PingOne.

  1. Configure a new SAML application, or edit an existing one.

    For more information, see Editing an application - SAML.

  2. Go to Connections > Applications.
  3. Locate the appropriate application. You can browse or search for applications.
  4. Click the application entry to open the details panel, and then click the Configuration tab.
  5. Copy the values in the Initiate single sign-on URL and the IdP metadata URL fields.
  6. Provide these values to the external identity provider. The details of this process vary depending on the identity provider. See the identity provider documentation for more information.
