Problem Description:



PingFederate administrators are managed by PingOne. In order to log into PingFederate, the user is authenticated in PingOne then redirected to PingFederate with a token and a session is started. You may wish to be able to log into PingFederate directly as a fall back. This article describes how to log into PingFederate directly without going through PingOne.
