Configure SAML IdP

PingIdentity PingOne IdP

PingOne® is an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solution that enables organizations to deliver single sign-on (SSO) for users with just one username and password—eliminating the multiple password security problem. PingOne delivers one-click access to all of the SaaS, legacy and custom web applications your users need while increasing security for your organization.

  1. Basic Information
    The first step is to provide some basic informations about the application itself. The application can be visible for public or closed and only be available for invited persons.

  2. Create a browser-based SSO connection
    Our authentication process uses SAML2 and following metadata (replace with the costumer url)
    innosabi Crowd Metadata
Assertion Consumer Service (ACS):
Entity ID:
Target Resource:
Single Logout Endpoint:
Single Logout Response Endpoint:
Single Logout Binding Type: urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-Redirect

Now we can upload our x509 certificate from the customer repository (/certs). If none exsists, you can generate a new one in our terminal:

openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -new -x509 -days 3652 -nodes -out saml.crt -keyout saml.pem

The last step is to include the metadata from PingOne into our local.ini

saml.idp.entityId = 'PingConnect'
saml.idp.singleSignOnService.url = ''
saml.idp.singleLogoutService.url = ''
saml.idp.x509cert = 'Add the given certificate provided by the download link'
;saml.sp.debug = false
saml.sp.singleLogoutService.binding = 'urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-Post'
saml.sp.x509cert = 'Add the certificate from the customer repository'
saml.sp.privateKey = 'Add the private key from the customer repository'
