Turning off access to less secure apps - alternative authentication mechanism

Hi All,

Recently there has been a message from Google about turning off access to less secure apps. This means that when we create receiver email accounts in Pega, we can no longer rely on using this setting in Gmail to connect to the email account.

Moving forward, only apps that support a more modern and secure access method - OAuth will be able to access G Suite account.

Is there any OOTB functionality when configuring Email accounts to use OAuth instead of username and password based authentication? I don't see anything in 8.3. So, was wondering if this is something which is going to be included in a future release of the platform?

Any inputs around this would be much appreciated.
