The first time you start PingOne, sign on with the default credentials that were set up during provisioning. The initial configuration includes a default organization, environment, and population. You can create additional environments, populations, and users for those populations.
After you start PingOne, you can set up your applications to work with PingOne. PingOne manages access to those applications and ensures that authorized users have access to the applications that they need.
PingOne uses an organization-based model to define tenant accounts and their related entities. The organization is the top-level identifier and defines your entire enterprise within the platform.
By default, your organization includes an Admin license, which contains an Admin environment and Administrators population. The Administrators population contains the initial administrator user. You should create all administrators in the Administrators population to make it easier to manage them and to help prevent privilege escalation.
Your organization also includes a Trial license and an End-User Sandbox environment that contains two populations and some sample users.
These tasks can help you get started setting up PingOne for your organization:
- To sign on, see Administrators: Managing your PingOne environment.
