Use the Applications page to edit existing OpenID Connect (OIDC)OpenID Connect (OIDC)OIDC An authentication protocol built on top of OAuth that authenticates users and enables clients (relying parties) of all types to request and receive information about authenticated sessions and users. OIDC is extensible, allowing clients to use optional features such as encryption of identity data, discovery of OpenID Providers (OAuth authorization servers), and session management. applications.

  1. Go to Applications > Applications.
  2. Browse or search for the application that you want to edit.
  3. Click the application entry to open the details panel, and then click the tab that you want to edit, and then click the pencil icon.
  4. For Overview, enter or edit the following information.
    Field Description

    Application Name

    A unique identifier for the application.

    Description (optional)

    A brief characterization of the application.

    Icon (optional)

    A pictorial representation of the application.

    Use a file up to 1MB in JPG, JPEG, GIF, or PNG format.

    Home page URL

    The default home page for the application.

    Signon URL

    The URL to which the application requests that the end user be redirected to for sign-on.


    To avoid issues with third-party cookies in some browsers, we recommend that you use a custom domain to give your PingOne environment the same parent domain as your authentication application. For more information, see Domains.

  5. For Configuration, enter or edit the following.
    Field Description

    Client ID

    The unique identifier for the application.

    Client secret

    The shared secret for the application. Ensure that you protect the client secret and store it in a secure location. To update the client secret, click Generate New Secret. For more information, see Rotating the client secret for an application.

    Environment ID

    The identifier for the environment that contains the application.

    Response type

    Select code, token, or ID token for the response type.

    For more information, see Response types.

    Grant type

    Select authorization code, implicit, refresh token, or client credentials for the grant type.

    For more information, see Grant types.

    PKCE enforcement

    Select a value for PKCE code challenge enforcement. This value determines how the application creates the code challenge from the code verifier.

    For more information, see PKCE enforcement.


    PKCE enforcement is available for Authorization Code grant type applications only.

    Refresh token configuration

    Select this option to enable the Refresh Token grant type. You can specify the following:

    Refresh token duration
    The lifetime of the refresh tokens. If a value is not provided, the default value is 2592000, or 30 days. Valid values are between 60 and 2147483647
    Refresh token rolling duration
    How long the application can use the refresh token grant type to obtain a new access token (and a new refresh token) after the most recent user authentication event. If a value is not provided, the refresh token is valid forever. Valid values are between 60 and 2147483647

    The refresh token rolling duration must be longer than the refresh token duration.

    Refresh token rolling grace period
    The amount of time that a rolled refresh token is still valid in the event that the client failed to receive an updated one during a roll. Valid values are between 0 and 86400 seconds. A value of zero means a refresh token becomes invalid after it’s rolled.

    Additional Refresh Token Replay Protection

    Outside of the optional rolling grace period, refresh tokens are intended for one-time use. For increased security, enable this option so that PingOne can invalidate both access and refresh tokens when a refresh token is reused. For more information, see Refresh token rotation.

    Redirect URIs

    The address to which PingOne forwards the OIDC response after authentication.


    The Redirect URI cannot contain a fragment component, such as #somedata. For more information, see Redirection endpoint in the IETF documentation.

    Allow Redirect URI patterns

    Use a wildcard for flexibility in managing redirect URIs. See Redirect URIs.

    Token Endpoint Authentication Method

    Select one of the following:

    • None
    • Client Secret Basic
    • Client Secret Post

    Require Pushed Authorization Request

    Require the application to send its authorization requests directly to PingOne, without going through the browser, which can safeguard sensitive information from end-user devices. If Require Pushed Authorization Request is not selected, the application can send plain authorization requests or pushed authorization requests, but pushed authorization requests are not required. For more information, see Pushed authorization requests.

    Pushed Authorization Request Reference Timeout

    Specify how long the pushed authorization request should be valid. The default value is 60 seconds.

    Initiate Login URI

    The application's login initiation endpoint for third-parties to begin the sign-on process for the application.

    If provided, PingOne redirects users to this URI to initiate SSO to PingOne. The application is responsible for implementing the relevant OIDC flow when the Initiate Login URI is requested.

    For more information, see Initiating Login from a Third Party in the OIDC specification. This URI is required if you want the application to show in the PingOne Application Portal. For more information, see Application portal.

    Target Link URI

    The URI for the application. If provided, PingOne redirects application users to this URI after the user is authenticated. The target_link_uri parameter value in Initiate Single Sign-On URL, as shown as part of the application configuration in the PingOne console, is also updated with the value specified here.

    Signoff URLs

    The URLs to which the browser can be redirected after a logout has been performed.

    If you include a post_logout_redirect_uri query parameter in the /signoff request, with the same value that was set in the application, then the browser will redirect the user to the matching URL.

    Request Parameter Signature Requirement

    Specify how the application sends the optional request parameter in its authorization requests.

    Click Compare options for a description of the different settings.
    • Default: Allow the application to send authorization requests with or without the request parameter. If using the request parameter, the application must include a digital signature.
    • Allow unsigned request parameters: Allow the application to send authorization requests with or without the request parameter. If using the request parameter, the application has the option to include a digital signature or not.
    • Require signed request parameters: Require the application to use the request parameter and include a digital signature of it in its authorization requests.

    For more information, see Request Parameter Signature Requirement.

  6. For Resources, select the OAuth scopes for the application by selecting the check box for the appropriate scopes. Click the Selected scopes tab to see the scopes that are currently selected for the application.

    The OAuth scopes determine the resources that the application can access. If you add OIDC scopes here, the application inherits the attributes associated with that scope.

  7. For Policies, select the authentication policies for the application.

    If you have a DaVinci license, you can select PingOne policies or DaVinci Flow policies, but not both. If you don’t have a DaVinci license, you’ll see PingOne policies only.

    To use a PingOne policy, Click + Add policies and then select the policies that you want to apply to the application. Click Add. The policies are applied in the order in which they appear in the list. PingOne evaluates the first policy in the list first. If the requirements of the policy are not met, PingOne moves to the next policy in the list. For more information, see Authentication policies for applications.

    To use a DaVinci Flow policy, you must clear all PingOne policies. Click the Deselect all PingOne policies button. In the confirmation message, click Continue. Click the DaVinci Policies tab, and then select the policies that you want to apply to the application. PingOne applies the first policy in the list.

    For OAuth-based applications, you can specify another policy in the acr_values parameter in the authorization request. The acr_values parameter specifies the sign-on policies that PingOne should use for authentication. You can include any policies assigned to the application. Specify either a single DaVinci policy by flow policy ID or one or more PingOne policies by name, separated by spaces or the encoded space character %20. For example, acr_values=d1210a6b0b2665dbaa5b652221badba2 or acr_values=Single_Factor%20Multi_Factor

  8. For Attribute mappings, select a PingOne user attribute and map it to an attribute in the application you are adding.
    1. Enter an application attribute and then select the corresponding PingOne attribute from the list.
    2. Click the Gear icon to use the expression builder to build an attribute mapping.

      For more information, see Using the expression builder.

  9. For Access, enter or edit the following:
    • Application portal display: Determines whether an application icon appears in the application portal even if the user is allowed to access the application in the application portal based on the group membership policy. For more information, see Application access control.
    • Admin only access: Specifies that a user with an administrator role is required to access the application. The user must have one of the following roles: Organization Admin, Environment Admin, Identity Data Admin, or Client Application Developer.
    • Group membership policy. Select the group membership policy for the application. For more information, see Groups.
  10. Click Save.
