Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

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

You must complete the following task before you can configure a SAML SSO authentication service: Creating an authentication service.
If you access Pega Platformusing a reverse proxy server, you must ensure that the reverse proxy is configured before configuring a SAML SSO authentication service. For more information, see Deployment behind a reverse proxy.
  1. Create a SAML SSO authentication service, or open an existing service from the navigation panel in Dev Studio by clicking Records SysAdmin Authentication Service and selecting a SAML SSO authentication service from the instance list.

  2. In the Authentication service alias field, specify an alias to represent a unique value for this service. This value becomes the final part of the URL path for users to access Pega Platform.

    Login URL is a read-only field that displays the URL that accesses Pega Platform and uses this service for user authentication.
  3. Optional:

    In the Provider logo field, specify an image to display on the login screen that identifies this provider.

  4. Configure the identity provider.

  5. Map the operator ID.

  6. Optional:

    Configure the optional parameters of the service.

  7. Activate your SAML SSO authentication service.
