Authentication ensures that only users and systems with a verified identity use the web embed and that all permitted manipulations of the data occur as the current user identity.
The OAuth 2.0 protocol allows external applications to access Pega Platform REST services by using access tokens.
When you create a web embed, Pega Platform automatically defines an OAuth 2.0 client registration data instance that you can access in the records explorer, in the node.
The client is automatically set up as public. You cannot modify this setting.
For more information, see Creating and configuring an OAuth 2.0 client registration.
Web embed supports the same authentication services as its parent application. If an authentication service is defined in the application, you do not need to define it again for the web embed.
