Requiring reauthentication for new and expired sessions for a token credentials authentication service

Suggest edit Updated on June 30, 2021

To add an extra layer of security, you configure Pega Platform to reauthenticate new sessions and to reauthenticate when reactivating an expired session. The time-out period is specified on the operator's access group or is managed by the application server or another external facility.

  1. Open the service from the navigation panel in Dev Studio by clicking RecordsSysAdminAuthentication Service and choosing a service from the instance list.
  2. On the Token credentials tab, expand the Advanced configuration settings section.
  3. Select the Use access group timeout checkbox to use the authentication time-out values that are specified in the user access group. This setting determines how long a user session can remain inactive before a client has to present another valid token. The token can be obtained by asking the user to log in, or it can be obtained from the identity provider. Clear the Use access group timeout checkbox if the time-out is managed by the application server or another external facility.
  4. Click Save.
