Question

Encrypt the URL send in an email

Hi ,

I need a send an email to internet users with the link to access the Pega application. Email includes a link with the Pega loadbalancer URL + Class Name + Activity Name + Parameters for the activity.

My requirement is to encrypt the URL and send it as an link in email , so the plain text details mentioned above are not exposed.

Do we have any OOTB functions/ settings to achieve . Note that I can't use the DWA due to few restrictions in DWA.

Appreciate for the help.

Hi,

1) Configure email listener.

2) Create keystore instance with JKS file type.

3) Add incoming Email account and keystore mapping in Data-Admin-Security-Keystore.pyEmailCertificateMap Decision Table.

4) Send encrypted mail to defined incoming email account

Thank You

Thanks for the response. I am looking for a way to encrypt the link which is sent an email , not looking to encrypt the whole email.
