Users and external systems connect to Pega Platform using one of four requestor types. Requestor type data instances define the types of requestors that can access your system, such as a browser session, an external application, or an internal background process.
Five requestor type data instances are defined. Each instance determines the rulesets, versions, access roles, and startup activities used by requestor sessions of that type.
CategoryThe Data-Admin-Requestor class contains requestor type data instances. They are part of the SysAdmin category.
- Understanding Requestor Type data instances
Requestors may be unauthenticated, known as guest users, or authenticated.
- Creating a requestor type
Create a requestor type data instance by selecting Requestor from the SysAdmin category. Provide access to applications for any person or external system signing in through the requestor type. Optionally, identify an access group — or in special situations, more than one access group — to be available to requestors of this type. As a user or other requestor signs on, the system adds the RuleSets and versions in the application rules of the selected access group to the user's RuleSet list.
- AsyncProcessor requestor type
Use the AsyncProcessor requestor type to resolve Job Scheduler and Queue Processor rules.
