Question

JWT (JSON Web Tokens)

Does pega support JSON web tokens in Connect or Service REST? I could not find any documentation for reference.

Please help me with the approach to implement JWT in PRPC applications.

I do not believe we have OOTB support for JWT yet. The only option I can see at the moment is to write custom java code for Connect-REST (activity pyInvokeRestConnector) using java, e.g., http://connect2id.com/products/nimbus-jose-jwt among other JWT preliminary implementations.

Thanks for the reply Kevin.

This was about PRPC as a consumer of service. What if PRPC wants to expose a service with JWT security? Any suggestions?

As this post has been closed, not too many people (specifically moderators -- who are big help in getting you help) would be monitoring it.  for next time, it would be best to create a new topic so it gets its own visibility.  But you are in luck because I believe what you are asking for is solved in Pega's new version, 7.3  (https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v73/procomhelpmain.htm#data-/data-admin-/data-admin-security-/data-admin-security-token/main.htm)
