PingGateway 2024.6

Use the sample application

ForgeRock provides a mockup web application for testing PingGateway configurations. The sample application is used in the examples in this guide and the Gateway guide.

Download the sample application

  1. Download PingGateway-sample-application-2024.6.0-jar-with-dependencies.jar, from the BackStage download site.

Start the sample application

  1. Start the sample application:

    $ java -jar PingGateway-sample-application-2024.6.0-jar-with-dependencies.jar
    [...] [INFO   ] Press Ctrl+C to stop the server.

    By default this server listens for HTTP on port 8081 and for HTTPS on port 8444. If one or both of those ports aren’t free, specify other ports:

    $ java -jar PingGateway-sample-application-2024.6.0-jar-with-dependencies.jar 8888 8889
  2. Check that the sample application is running in one of the following ways:

    1. Go to to access the home page of the sample application. Information about the browser request is displayed.

    2. Go to to access the login page of the sample application, and then log in with username demo and password Ch4ng31t. The username and some information about the browser request is displayed.

Stop the sample application

  1. In the terminal where the sample application is running, select CTRL+C to stop the sample application.

Serve static resources

When the sample application is used with PingGateway in examples, it must serve static resources, such as the .css. Similarly, browser requests often serve resources that don’t need protection, such as icons and .gif files.

Add the following route to PingGateway to serve the sample application .css and other static resources:

  • Linux

  • Windows

  "name" : "00-static-resources",
  "baseURI" : "",
  "condition": "${find(request.uri.path,'^/css') or matchesWithRegex(request.uri.path, '^/.*\\\\.ico$') or matchesWithRegex(request.uri.path, '^/.*\\\\.gif$')}",
  "handler": "ReverseProxyHandler"

$ java -jar PingGateway-sample-application-2024.6.0-jar-with-dependencies.jar -h
