Question

JWT\JWKS authentication validation approach in Pega 7.2.1 version

I am currently using the Pega 7.2.1 version. Business requirement is to use the JWT\JWKS authentication validation process to decrypt the authentication token key and validate it. I have not seen any OOTB JWT\JWKS authentication validation approach in Pega 7.2.1. There is a JWT process in version 7.3

Could any please provide best approach for decrypting the JWT\JWKS token in Pega 7.2.1 version.

As I understand, JWT is supported from 7.3 onwards. Also, I think encryption wasn't implemented until 7.3.1 or 7.4.

Thank you Paul for your reply.

As we cannot implement until 7.3.1. I am planning to use the Java JWT/JWKS Jar files for implementing the same functionality. Could you please let me know any other way I can processed with it?

I do not know of any other way. I'll run your proposal by the dev team and see if they have any feedback.
