Token profile data instance

Version:

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.

The Pega Platform server acts as a trusted third party that generates, or processes (validates), a JWT after you fill out the token profile form and provide the required information.

Access the token profile data instance in Dev Studio from the navigation panel by clicking Records Security Token Profile .

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Previewing the JSON Web Token profile

    Preview the JSON Web Token that is generated from the token profile instance to view all the claims and headers in the token. You can also view the values that are mapped from the clipboard and resolved at run time. The preview function is useful for debugging. For example, if a token is unexpectedly rejected, you can view the entire content of the token to determine the cause.
