Integrating with PingFederate

Integrating Jamf Connect with PingFederate involves the following steps:

  1. Add Jamf Connect as a new client app in PingFederate.

  2. Create users and assign roles.

When integrating with PingFederate, keep the following in mind when configuring settings in your administrative console:

  • The client ID for your Jamf Connect client should not include any spaces.

  • The Resource Owner Credentials Mapping settings should map to a Source Password Validator instance.

  • Makes sure you review the Access Token Attribute Contract to ensure the access token from PingFederate includes necessary claims (username and email) to create a local account with Jamf Connect.

  • If issuing an Internally Managed Reference Token from PingFederate for Jamf Connect, you must also set the UseUserInfo preference key to true in your Jamf Connect login window configuration profile. This settings allows Jamf Connect to request additional claims from a user token.

For more information about managing PingFederate, see the OAuth Configuration section the PingFederate Administrator's Manual.
