Use a PingFederate connection to connect an instance of PingFederate with the PingOne platform, which allows PingFederate to use PingOne services, such as MFA or Risk.
This connection allows the credentials for the PingFederate connection to be stored in PingOne. Each PingFederate connection has one or more credentials associated with it. The credential is generated in PingOne and then configured in PingFederate so that PingOne can authenticate the PingFederate additional service used by PingFederate. After you create a connection, you won’t need to enter credentials or other connection details for each instance. The credentials never expire, but you can create new credentials and revoke old ones if you want to rotate the credentials.
You will generate a credential in PingOne and then copy it to PingFederate when you create the connection. During runtime, PingFederate uses the credential to access PingOne services.
