            Setting Up Ping Identity As An IdP Server for ParkMyCloud

            The purpose of this article is to guide you in setting up Ping as an Identity Provider (IdP). 

            In this example we used PingOne for SaaS applications. For more information, consult the  Ping Documentation.

            ​Spoiler Alert: Using the semi-automated configuration approach (uploading an IdP metadata file) for Ping within ParkMyCloud is the preferred approach.
            To configure Ping, you will need admin permissions.  Login to Ping with the appropriate credentials



            Once logged in select "Admin" to enable the appropriate privileges.



            After the dashboard, select "Applications":




            Select "Application Catalog" and type in "parkmycloud" in the search bar; then click on the right dive arrow:

             

            Then click "Setup":


            This next screen provides a lot of information, including a summary of the steps to configure at the bottom of page. You can just click past it ("Continue to Next Step"):


            On this screen you will see the place to paste in the SP ACS URL from ParkMyCloud. The ACS URL and Entity ID are the same. Paste it both locations.
             
            Then scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Continue to Next Step":



            On this screen you will map the claims (or assertions). Simply pick the selections on the far right which match the descriptions and click on "Continue to Next Step": 


            On the next page, select "Save & Publish": 


            At the bottom of the next screen you will see a Download link for SAML Metadata. Click on it:



             Save the IdP metadata file for later on, then click on "Finish" when you are done:


            The setup of the application is done. On this next screen you choose which users or groups you want to allow access to ParkMyCloud. 


            In this case we have chose the Users group and selected ParkMyCloud to enable access for that group. Select "Save" and you're all done with the Ping Identity configuration
             



            Back on the ParkMyCloud page you can select "Upload an IdP metadata file" and choose the file you saved earlier.  




            Once you click on "Save Changes", ParkMyCloud will display the information gleaned from the metadata file in a manual mode display.




            You can give your users the SP Login URL and they can login using SP-initiated SSO. They will be authenticated against the Ping Identity IdP server and, once authenticated, will be logged into ParkMyCloud. On first login, their ParkMyCloud user account will be automatically created.
