How the PingOne application portal works

The PingOne application portal grants users access to SAML and OpenID Connect (OIDC) applications. The applications that a user sees depend on the access controls for each application. For more information about adding an application, see Adding an application.


To make an OIDC application available on the PingOne application portal, the application must have an Initiate Single Sign-on URL. You can add this URL after creating the application by going to the Configuration tab and entering the URL into the Initiate Login URI field.

For more information, see Editing an application - OIDC.

Showing or hiding applications

Even if a user has access to an application, you can specify whether to include it in the Application Portal. For example, you could show or hide an application if the SSO flow is being triggered through means other than on the Application Portal. For more information, see Application access control and Editing an application.
