Configuring the Dun & Bradstreet integration in Pega Underwriting for Insurance

Updated on September 13, 2021

Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) is a data analytics company that provides its customers with data and insight into a potential business partner’s company profile, including financial background, operations, and risk. Using this data, Dun & Bradstreet customers decide which companies they want to work with. You can receive this data from Dun & Bradstreet in your Pega Underwriting for Insurance application by enabling the Hoover's Dun & Bradstreet Direct 2.0 Data component (D&B component).

The D&B component currently provides 13 data pages that you can use to integrate to most of the APIs provided by Dun & Bradstreet. The information from the following two Dun & Bradstreet services is mapped to the Pega Underwriting for Insurance application and can be used as a reference to map other services as required:

  • Detailed Company Profile
  • Financial Highlights and Statements


Before you enable the D&B component in Pega Underwriting for Insurance, you need to register for a D&B Direct access account. To do so, see If you already have a D&B Direct access account, you can skip this step.

Enabling the D&B component

  1. Log in to Pega Underwriting for Commercial Insurance by entering the credentials for your system administrator operator.
  2. In the navigation panel of Dev Studio, click Records > Security > Authentication Profile.
  3. On the Edit Authentication Profile tab, click DunBradstreetAPICredentials.
  4. Replace the username and password with the API credentials that you received when you created your D&B Direct access account.
  5. Click Save.

Verifying your D&B credentials

  1. In Dev Studio, search for and select the D_DunBradstreetAuthentication data page.
  2. Click Actions > Run.
    Under AuthenticationDetail, the access token is displayed in the Token field. You entered the credentials successfully.
    If you do not see the access token in that field, contact the D&B Direct API Support Center.
