Pivotal Web Services End of Availability Announced
For more information, see Frequently Asked Questions.

PingFederate is a federation server that provides identity management, single sign-on, and API security for the enterprise. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between PingFederate as the Identity Provider (IdP) and the Single Sign-On Service (SSO) for Pivotal Web Services (PWS) as the Service Provider (SP).

SSO supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All SSO communication takes place over SSL.


To integrate PingFederate with (PWS), you need:

  • PingFederate

  • A PingFederate user with Administrator privileges.

Note: To configure SAML, you must contact Pivotal to have Single Sign-On enabled for your PWS organizations through plan creation. You should be added as a plan administrator. For help configuring plans, see the Manage Service Plans topic.
