Using SAML authentication to log in to Citrix Gateway

You can use SAML authentication to log in to Citrix Gateway using Citrix VPN clients and Workspace app. The plug-in supports SAML authentication only through advanced SAML policies bound to the authentication virtual server, that is nfactor authentication.
