Introduction


Introduction to the PingOne for Customers API

PingOne for Customers is a cloud-based identity as a service (IDaaS) framework for secure identity access management. The PingOne for Customers API gives developers the tools to manage users and integrate enterprise and third-party applications with the PingOne identity and application management platform.

This document describes the PingOne Management API services, which are used to manage your organization’s users and applications, and the Authentication API services, which are used to manage authorization, authentication, permissions, and the sign-on policies that grant users access to applications.

The PingOne for Customers APIs manage access to your organization’s applications and ensure that only authorized users (your customers, employees, and partners) have access to the applications they have permission to use.
