Can anyone give me any pointer as to what are the steps I need to setup while accessing an external application from Salesforce, which uses Ping One service for their SSO?

1 Answer 1


The requirements are mentioned on the PingOne data sheet. Apart from that, the key is which technique are you actually using to authenticate with SSO. Whether it is

  • Assertion contains User's salesforce.com username
  • Assertion contains the Federation ID from the User object

The 2nd option is more common and you'll need to configure it in a manner similar to what's shown below.

For more details, refer to this and this link.

  • Thanks Gaurav. Could you elaborate a bit how the information flows from Salesforce to the external site and PingOne?
