Specifying the Kerberos authentication method that Pega Platform uses


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Configure the EnableDefaultKerberosAuthenticationForRobotManger dynamic system setting to specify which Kerberos authentication method you want to use to authenticate traffic to Pega Robot Manager.

You can either use the in-built capability that provides support for third-party SPNEGO libraries or use your own method of Kerberos authentication.
  1. In the navigation panel of Dev Studio, click Records.

  2. Expand the SysAdmin category, and then click Dynamic System Settings.

  3. Click the record with the pegarobotics Owning Ruleset and EnableDefaultKerberosAuthenticationForRobotManger Setting Purpose.

  4. On the Settings tab, in the Value field, enter one of the following values:

    • true – Pega Robot Manager authenticates the service principal name (SPN) from a Kerberos ticket, by using the default authentication using SPNEGO libraries, which you configured. For more information, see Enabling Pega Platform to support Kerberos single sign-on.
    • false – Pega Robot Manager does not authenticate the Kerberos ticket and reads the SPN to validate the operator ID of the requesting robot to establish a session with it. You can then configure your own method of Kerberos authentication.
  5. Confirm your settings by clicking Save.
