Creating an authentication service

Create an authentication service to override or extend the default authentication process. By creating an authentication service, you implement more specialized authentication requirements than the default, for example, to use preauthentication and postauthentication activities.

Before you begin: To create an authentication service, you must have the pzCanCreateAuthService privilege, which is included in the PegaRULES:SecurityAdministrator role.
  1. Click Configure > Org & Security > Authentication > Create Authentication Service.
  2. In the Type list, select the authentication service type.
    • SAML 2.0 – SAML 2.0 web SSO-based authentication
    • Custom – LDAP authentication or custom authentication protocol
    • Kerberos – Kerberos user credentials
    • OpenID Connect – OpenID Connect
  3. Enter a name and short description.
  4. Click Create and open.
  5. Configure your authentication service.
