Switching between applications in Dev Studio


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

When you work on multiple applications, you can switch between them by using the Application menu.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Switch Application [Application name] .

  2. In the alphabetized list, select an application that you want to use as your current application.

    The list of available applications is based on the access groups that are defined on your Operator ID form. If more than one access group points to the same application, the Switch Application menu displays the application label followed by the access group in parenthesis.

    You can switch between applications without reentering login credentials if the applications share a common authentication service. However, if you are using two Pega Platform applications without a common authentication service or where the user is not authenticated with a common authentication service, and you try to switch applications, a dialog will launch with the message: Switch application with different authentication service. When you click the Login button, a new tab will open for you to reauthenticate using the default authentication service for that application.

  • Adding the My Applications gadget
