Identity mapping

Suggest edit Updated on June 30, 2021

The Identity Mapping rule form allows you to specify how to identify an operator from a SAML 2.0 Assertion, JSON Web Token, or custom source.

When you register a user through OAuth 2.0 Client Registration, you can choose to authenticate the user with the attribute values that are provided in the SAML 2.0 Assertion or with claims that are provided in the JSON Web Token. To identify the operator, you can map the attributes from the SAML 2.0 Assertion or the claims from a JSON Web Token to the operator record in Pega Platform. You can also choose to use a custom source to identify the operator by providing password credentials as an operator.

The Identity Mapping data instance is referenced in the OAuth 2.0 Client Registration rule form.
