Services connect PingOne Authorize with data sources, such as APIs and information points, that provide information used to make context-aware authorization decisions.
Service connections augment authorization events with real-time data. Policy authors can't use information from a service directly in policies. Instead, services are a source of data for the attributes used in policy evaluations.
After you connect a service to PingOne Authorize, make sure you add or generate attributes that store values resolved from the service. For more information, see Authorization attributes.
PingOne Authorize supports the following types of service connections:
- HTTP services
These services connect to HTTP endpoints accessible over the public internet.
HTTP services can send and receive text, JSON, and XML content. You can send custom headers with any request.
- Connector services
These services consume information from other services provided by the PingOne platform. For information about attributes that are automatically generated when you connect to a PingOne service, see Generating an attribute.
The PingOne Risk connector pulls in risk signals for use in authorization policies.Note:
This connector requires a PingOne Risk license.
You can test service integrations to validate output values.
