Mapping authentication services in App Studio

As an administrator, configure authentication services in an application by using App Studio. This feature streamlines functionality and provides an effective and user-friendly way to configure authentication for users who are not familiar with Dev Studio.

This functionality is available in both App Studio and Dev Studio. For more information, see Mapping authentication services in Dev Studio.

Any changes that you make to the authentication services in App Studio will display in Dev Studio, and any changes that you make to the authentication services in Dev Studio will display in App Studio. However, you must first save your changes and then refresh both studios to see the changes.
In App Studio, you can only create Google, OIDC, and SAML 2 authentication services. If you want to create any other type of authentication service, such as a custom authentication service, you must use Dev Studio.

In App Studio, you can add a new authentication service to an application. Additionally, you can configure, copy the login URL, remove associations and disable the authentication services.

Only administrators with the pzAdvancedSecurityUser privilege can map authentication services to an application. By default, the PegaRULES:SecurityAdministrator role includes the pzAdvancedSecurityUser privilege.

Administrators with this access role can select the default authentication service or interactive screen on which user can then select an authentication service.

  • If the administrator selects the default configuration, then the user is automatically redirected to the default authentication service during login.
  • If the administrator selects the interactive configuration, then the system will display the authentication selector screen with mapped authentication services.
