You can generate a one-time password by calling an API. Use this method to use a one-time password from an external system or if your application is running on a Pega Platform version earlier than 7.3.

  1. Create a REST Connector by using the REST integration wizard.

    For more information about how to configure the connector, see Creating a REST integration.

  2. In the Endpoint URL field, enter the authenticate/one-time password web service on your server instance.

  3. Select the POST method to invoke the external REST service.

  4. In the Add a REST response dialog box, in the Content type list, select JSON.

  5. For the response, enter the following text:

    "Context": "Test 126",
    "EmailSettings": {
    "CorrespondenceName": "pyDefaultOTPCorr",
    "EmailAccount": "Default",
    "Subject": "OTP New",
    "ToAddress": ""
