Question on Authentication Service Basic Authentication using externally stored credentials ver826

Hi Experts,

                 Pega Platform version 8.2.6

                I created the Authentication Service based on the basic credentials authentication type.  We have the option to check "Verify credentials using external identity store"  we are using the data page and validating the credentials using the external DB.  if the credentials are right we are setting pyApprovalStatus==true everything works fine but if the credentials are wrong how to display the message on the login screen is not working

No proper help/example/document on how to handle failure scenarios.  username wrong or password wrong

if we add the security policies on the captcha/password/lock works with platform authentication but not above scenario?

workaround tried:  setting pyChallenge and pyFailMessage  but not working.


Appreciate all your help.
