Mapping authentication services in Dev Studio

As an administrator, configure authentication services in an application in Dev Studio, to streamline functionality and provide an effective way to manage the authentication services within an application.

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

There are two ways to map authentication services in Dev Studio: map an existing authentication service, or create a new authentication service. Both options are explained here.

Any changes that you make to the authentication services in Dev Studio will display in App Studio, and any changes that you make to the authentication services in App Studio will display in Dev Studio. However, you must first save your changes and then refresh both studios to see the changes.

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

    You can map an existing authentication service directly from the application definition by following the steps below.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Definition.

  2. Click the Security tab.

  3. Click + Add authentication service.

  4. In the Name column, enter the name of the authentication service that you want to map.

  5. Optional:

    To update the authentication service, click the Configure icon to the right of the new authentication service.

  6. Click Save.

    You can create a new authentication service directly from the application definition by following the steps below.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Definition.

  2. Click the Security tab.

  3. Click + Add authentication service.

  4. Click the Configure icon to the right of the Authentication service name field.

  5. In the Authentication type list, choose an authentication type.

  6. In the Name field, enter a name for your authentication service.

    The Short description field should auto-populate. For example, if you name your authentication service testservice, the short description will show: testservice/prweb/PRAuth
  7. Click Create and open.

Depending on the type of authentication service that you create, the configuration form will automatically open.
Now, you will need to configure your authentication service. For more information, see:
