An identity is a unique user resource within PingOne that interacts with the applications and services in the environment to which the user is assigned. The PingOne platform includes numerous services that define and configure a user identity.
Users and the user schema
The users endpoints enable directory operations to create and manage user accounts, including assigning the user to a population, assigning user roles, managing passwords, managing MFA devices, unlocking a user account, managing user consents, and managing ID verification transaction records. It also supports an import capability that gives privileged applications the ability to create a new user and set the user’s password.
For more information, see Users.
For information about user core attributes and about adding custom attributes to the user schema, see Schemas.
The Credentials Issuance API provides endpoints to create custom verifiable credentials for users. The resulting credentials can then be shared with native applications. For more information, see Credentials Issuance.
The groups API provides endpoints to create collections of users with the same access to applications. For more information, see Groups.
Identity provider management
The identity provider endpoints manage external identity provider configurations. It enables the social login, authoritative login, and inbound SAML login features in PingOne. For more information, see Identity Provider Management.
The identity propagation API provides for configurable and audit-capable propagation of identities and their attributes between identity stores owned or managed by a customer. For more information, see Identity Propagation (Provisioning).
