Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Provide your users with access to external web resources by configuring an External web component section. By setting up OAuth 2.0 authentication, mashup, and authorization, you can link your application to an external product at run time.

Add an External web component to a section. For more information, see Creating an External web component.
  1. Search for and open the section that contains the External web component that you want to configure.

  2. Click the View properties icon for the section to display the Cell Properties panel.

  3. On the General tab, define the section settings.

  4. On the Parameters tab, complete the Mashup content section to provide the information that allows you to access OAuth 2.0-protected resources on the external application at run time by performing the following actions:

    1. In the Authentication profile field, enter or create an authentication profile of type OAuth 2.0 that you want to use to connect to the external application.

    2. In the Use section field, enter or create a section that displays the OAuth 2.0-protected content of the external application at run time.

      This section must be created in the PegaGadget-InformationMashup class.
    3. In the Page context field, select the page context for the section that displays the OAuth 2.0-protected content at run time. Select the current page context to use the class ( Applies To key part) of the current section. You can also use a data page, clipboard page or a page that is defined by a property.

  5. In the Use section field under Authorization content, enter or create a section that allows you to connect to or disconnect from the external application at run time. The default section is pxMashupAuthorization.
