Multi-factor authentication with a one-time password

Suggest edit Updated on June 30, 2021

Pega Platform supports two-factor authentication by sending a one-time password (OTP) to a user through email. The user must enter this one-time password in your Pega Platform application for verification.

Two-factor authentication is supported for the following use cases:

  • In custom authentication services
  • In case flows, to authenticate a user before critical transactions (such as a funds transfer in excess of a certain amount)

You can configure your Pega Platform application to use two-factor authentication by completing the following steps:

  1. Configuring multifactor authentication policies.
  2. Generating a one-time password.
  3. Verifying a one-time password.
