Switching between applications

Updated on May 31, 2022

When you work on multiple applications, you can switch between them by using the My Applications gadget.

By default, the My Applications gadget is available in App Studio.
Before you begin: To switch between applications in portals other than App Studio, add the gadget.

For more information, see Adding the My Applications gadget.

  1. In the header of App Studio, click My Applications.
  2. From the list, select an application that you want to open.
  3. Optional: If you have more than one access role in the application, select the role that you want to use, and then click Go.

    You can switch between applications without reentering login credentials if the applications share a common authentication service. However, if you are using two Pega Platform applications without a common authentication service or where the user is not authenticated with a common authentication service, and you try to switch applications, a dialog will launch with the message: Switch application with different authentication service. When you click the Login button, a new tab will open for you to reauthenticate using the default authentication service for that application.

    For more information, see Mapping authentication services in App Studio.

  • Adding the My Applications gadget

    To conveniently navigate between your applications, add the My Applications gadget to your existing portal or application by embedding a header and a menu.
