Configuring an OpenID Connect SSO authentication service


After you create an OpenID Connect SSO authentication service, configure it so that Pega Platform uses the specified identity provider for authenticating users. You can map claims from the OpenID Connect provider to properties in Pega Platform, and configure optional features such as preauthentication and postauthentication activities and operator provisioning.

You must complete the following task before you can configure an OpenID Connect authentication service: Creating an authentication service
