Authentication schemes

Suggest edit Updated on August 21, 2020

The Pega Platform offers the following authentication types:

PRBasic
Based on passwords in the Operator ID data instances and the login form. This is defined by the HTML @baseclass.Web-Login rule, which your application can override.
PRSecuredBasic
Similar to PRBasic, but passes credentials by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with Basic HTTP authentication. The login form is defined by the HTML @baseclass.Web-Login-SecuredBasic rule, which your application can override.
PRCustom
Supports access to an external LDAP directory or a custom authentication scheme.
PRExtAssign
Supports external assignments (Directed Web Access).
J2EEContext
Specifies that the application server in which the Pega Platform is deployed uses JAAS to authenticate users.
