Snapstart or SSO?


We have a requirement in our project to launch in Pega portal from an external website. Now each of these user is going to be a guest user (visitor to above website). Now snapstart URL has user credentials passed in query string meaning user should exist prior to the launch of modal. And it's not a typical SSO use case since there's no exchange of attribs or token to re-authenticate/authorize the user.

Any suggestions on better approach?

Hi Rahul,

You can use the snapstartURL and unathenticated guest user as below:

  1. Create a RuleSet and Version 01-01-01 to be available to guest requestors. (Review and test carefully any rules added to this RuleSet, to retain system security.)

  2. Update the access group PegaRULES:Unauthenticated to include this RuleSet version.

  3. Test using the URL:
