I'm trying to set up an SSO connection using Auth0. My app is set up as the Service Provider (SP), and it needs to work with PingFederate as the Identity Provider (IdP).

I don't have access to an account with the IdP, but I want to test that I've got everything on my connection set up correctly - how can I do that without installing and setting up a PingFederate server?

    Have you contacted the IdP to see if they can give you a test account? That seems the best option. – Neil Smithline May 27 '16 at 17:47
  • I agree with Neil... most of our customers have at least one non-production environment that they can configure a test connection on for you. I'll say that we have had no issues in the past with Auh0 that I'm aware of. – Andrew K. May 28 '16 at 12:14
  • I wasn't able to get a test account from the IdP, so in the end we just had a few volunteers on their side to test ;) – FaCE Jun 2 '16 at 9:57

In the end I used the service SSO Circle which is a freemium public IdP service that you can use to test your connection. It provides metadata, certificates, the whole shebang.

There seems to be a concurrent session limit for the free account and you don't get any error logging/deebugging tools (and the interface is a bit naff) but its certainly better than not having an IdP to test with!
