Creating a token profile

Version:

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.

There are two purposes for token profiles: Generation and Processing. Each is a separate token profile.

  • Creating a generation JSON Web Token profile

    Create a generation JSON Web Token (JWT) profile to specify how Pega Platform generates a given JWT.

  • Creating a processing JSON Web Token profile

    Create a processing JSON Web Token (JWT) profile to specify how Pega Platform validates and decrypts each JSON Web Token it receives.

  • 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.
