View and update the global REST API Client ID and REST API Client Secret values.
As a Service Provider (SP), to integrate your cloud application with PingOne SSO for SaaS Apps, you must assign a REST API Client Secret value. This value with the associated REST API Client ID are the credentials required for basic HTTP authentication between your client and PingOne SSO for SaaS Apps, which creates a secure connection over which your application can receive user attributes.
You can use the REST API Client ID and REST API Client Secret on the Global Credentials tab for all of your application connections and the Customer Connections API. For improved security, you should create separate credentials for each application.
For more information on creating additional credentials, see Creating or editing application-specific credentials and Creating or editing additional Connection API credentials.
Include these credentials in the Basic authorization header as
When using cURL, the --user parameter is a wrapper for Basic authentication.
If you have set the global REST API Client Secret, you can disable it in favor of the more secure application and connection credentials.
To change the global credentials, click Edit:
- Enter a REST API Client Secret value.
- Select or clear the Enabled check box.
- Click Save.
Your REST API Client ID value is assigned when you activate your PingOne SSO for SaaS Apps account. This value cannot be changed.
