Configuring activities to generate a JSON Web Token


To generate a JSON Web Token in Pega Platform, you need to call the pxGenerateJWT activity. The activity can then generate the token.

  1. Create a custom activity that you will use to generate the JSON web token.

  2. In your activity, add a step to call the activity pxGenerateJWT, and pass these parameters.

    • profileName - Enter the token profile name that you created.
    • jwtPageName - Enter the JWT clipboard page name.
    • inputPagaName - Enter the page name that contains input data used in a custom claim.
    • payloadPageName - Enter the page name from which you want to map properties.
    • payloadCustomKeyName - Enter the node name where the data is generated. The default name is pyData.
    • excludedPropertiesJWTList - Enter a comma-separated list of properties to exclude from the node.
    • outputPegaName - Enter the generated JWT.
  3. Click Save.

  4. Run your custom activity to generate the token.

  • Token profile data instance

    Create a JSON Web Token (JWT) profile data instance to confirm a user's identity between two different processes. JSON Web Token (JWT) is an open standard that defines a compact and self-contained method to securely exchange information between different parties as a JSON object. For example, the token can contain information about a user that can be used by another party to validate the identity of the user.

  • Creating a token profile

    Use a JSON Web Token (JWT) to exchange information securely between two different parties. For example, a JWT can carry information about a user that can be used by another party to authenticate the identity of the user.
