Prolaborate and Ping Identity SAML Integration


Your Prolaborate site should have a valid SSL Certificate.

If you don’t have a SSL Certificate, you can create a self-signed certificate yourself. Please get in touch with Prolaborate team to know more about it.

Service Provider Configuration

To configure the Service Provider i.e. Prolaborate, click on Menu → SAML Settings.

From the top right of the page that opens, click on Enable SSO.

Under Service Provider Configuration,

  1. Name and Assertion Consumer URL will be prefilled. Note that these URLs will be used as ‘ Entity ID’ and ‘Assertion Consumer URL’ in Ping Identity configuration respectively.
  2. Choose the .pfx file of your SSL certificate
  3. Enter the Password of the .pfx file

Default Access Control Profile

Click on Manage Profiles to create a new profile.

Click on Create Profile.

Give a Name to the Profile and configure permissions.

This is the permission that will be provided to all the users logging into Prolaborate using their SSO credentials.

You can choose any one of the following options:

  1. Give access to all repositories – Any user logging with their SSO credentials will be given access to all repositories
  2. Specify access – Any user logging with their SSO credentials will be added to the user groups you have specified after selecting the repositories

Click Save.

Now, go back to SAML Settings page.

Select the newly created profile and click Save.

Log in with Ping Identity Credentials

Once the configuration is done, your users will start to see a new button on the login page called Login with SSO .

When they click on Login with SSO,

They will be redirected to an URL as per configuration. They can then give their Ping Identity credentials to login to Prolaborate.

You will be redirected to Prolaborate successfully if the configuration is done right as said in the document.

Note the Repositories you see will be based on Default Access Control Profile

Logging out from Prolaborate

When a user initiates a logout, the user will be logged out from all applications in the current Identity provider login session.
