Suggest edit Updated on December 13, 2021
Applicable to Theme UI-Kit applications

After adding an External web component section, you can configure the section with an OAuth 2.0 authentication profile, mashup section, and authorization section to connect to an external application at run time.

  1. Click the View properties icon for the section to display the Cell Properties panel.
  2. Complete the General tab. For more information, see Harness and section forms - Adding a section.
    Note: This tab does not include the Standard Parameters field. You can configure the parameters in step 4.
  3. Complete the Presentation Tab.
  4. On the Parameters tab, complete the Mashup content section to provide the information that allows you to access OAuth 2.0-protected resources on the external application at run time by performing the following actions:
    1. In the Authentication profile field, enter or create an authentication profile of type OAuth 2.0 that you want to use to connect to the external application.
    2. In the Use section field, enter or create a section that displays the OAuth 2.0-protected content of the external application at run time.
      Note: This section must be created in the PegaGadget-InformationMashup class.
    3. In the Page context field, select the page context for the section that displays the OAuth 2.0-protected content at run time. Select the current page context to use the class ( Applies To key part) of the current section. You can also use a data page, clipboard page or a page that is defined by a property.
  5. In the Use section field under Authorization content, enter or create a section that allows you to connect to or disconnect from the external application at run time. The default section is pxMashupAuthorization.
