External People(non–employee / Applicant) Access for PeopleSoft Pages

Below steps helps to give access to components for external people.

This is required for many scenarios. Some Examples are:

1. Forgot password – Helps employee to retrieve login password.

2. External Candidate – Helps to apply  job for the company.

3. External candidate to register course – Helps external candidates to apply course. etc..

Steps to to give access for external people:

Step 1: Create a user id as EXTERNAL and set a password(PS) for it.Assign "External Applicant" & "Recruitment User"(optional) roles to this user-id. Save it.

Important : Do not attach any other Role to this user id.


Screens of roles



Step2: go to PeopleTools --> Webprofile --> Webprofile Configuration.

Then choose the profile (E.g. DEV)

Navigate to the "Security" tab and check "allow public access" and give the userid "EXTERNAL" and password "PS" and save it.



Step3: To access page use the below format.

"http://Your IP:Port/psc/ps/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/c/ComponentName.Market"

Hi Felix

This is not required to create new user id, it is good that u create different user id and assign appropriate roles to it.

Answering to your second question, you can use existing PROD webprofile if this is Production environment else you can use DEV webprofile in your development environment.
