Substituting another service for the default CAPTCHA

Updated on July 1, 2021

Pega Platform uses the SimpleCaptcha service by default. You can choose to use another third-party service, or a solution you have developed in-house.

In either case, you need to take the following steps:

  1. Locate the following rules and save them without changing their names into the ruleset you created for unauthenticated visitors:
    • pyCustomCaptchaHead
    • pyCustomCaptchaBody
    • pyValidateCustomCaptcha
    • pyCustomCaptchaConnector
  2. Customize the rules as indicated below to serve your custom CAPTCHA solution.
  3. In the Security Policies gadget, make sure the CAPTCHA implementation policy is set to Custom and that CAPTCHA is enabled.
