Providing access rights for Pega Process Fabric Hub by editing a service package

Updated on August 26, 2022

To ensure that Pega Process Fabric Hub can establish a connection with the applications in your Pega Platform system, configure appropriate access rights for Pega Process Fabric Hub by editing a service package.

A service package is a collection of services that controls access to the listeners for services with defined access groups, such as authentication and REST services. By updating a service package, you ensure that Pega Process Fabric Hub can connect to your registered applications.Note: Service package settings are system-wide and affect all applications in your instance of Pega Platform. You only need to configure these settings once and the configuration affects all applications. The configuration resets only after you reinstall the Pega Process Fabric Hub connector component from your remote application.
  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
  2. Expand the Integration-Resources category, and then click Service Package.
  3. In the list of the service package instances, select ppfconnect.
  4. On the Context tab, in the Processing mode list, select Stateless.
  5. In the Service access group field, enter the name of an access group in the application that you want to connect to the Pega Process Fabric Hub.For example: Enter YourApplication:Administrators.
    Note: If you use a custom access group other than Application:Administrators or Application:Authors, add the access group to the AllowedRegistrationAccessGroups dynamic system setting. For more information, see Modification of the standard mappings published to Pega Process Fabric Hub and Editing a dynamic system setting. Ensure that the access group is present in your operator record. For more information, see Defining operator contact information and application access.
  6. Select the Requires authentication checkbox.
  7. In the Authentication type list, select OAuth 2.0.
  8. Select the Suppress Show-HTML checkbox.For example: The following figure shows a sample configuration for the service package:

  9. In the Methods section, view the newly created REST services by clicking Refresh.Result: The ppfconnect service package now includes the app, assignments/{assignmentID}/canperform, and applications/{applicationName}/actions/{action} REST services that you use to communicate with Pega Process Fabric Hub, as in the following figure:
