Making mobile apps available to users

Updated on April 27, 2022

To use a mobile app that you configure for a Pega Platform application in production, configure an operator role to provide users with access to your mobile app.

When you develop a mobile app for a Pega Platform application, for example, an expense reporting app for users on a business trip, you give yourself and other authors permissions to preview and test the mobile app. When you complete the development stage, you make the mobile app available to users by assigning the mobile interface to their corresponding role, for example, User.
  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Users, and then click Personas.
  2. In the Role area, next to the role that you assigned to the users of your Pega Platform application, in the Channel interface list, select a mobile channel.
  3. Click Save.
Result: The mobile channel is now available to users with the role that you selected.
What to do next: You can generate the mobile app distributable files that let end users access your application. For more information, see Generating native mobile apps.
  • Security mechanisms for mobile apps

    You can take advantage of several security mechanisms when you build a Pega Mobile Client-based app. These mechanisms help you provide users with access to your mobile apps that matches your company's security requirements.

  • Selecting an authentication service

    Build safe mobile apps by selecting an authentication source that matches your security requirements. For example, you can use the default account authentication to effectively build secure apps that users can access with Pega Platform credentials.

  • Increasing mobile app security with time-outs and native locks

    Increase the security of your mobile apps by configuring automatic app locks, and by adding convenient and secure mechanisms to unlock them. For example, you can configure your app to lock after a period of time and require users to unlock it by using a native fingerprint scanner.
