Single sign-on support for the Workspace URL for users logged in via Citrix Workspace app

Citrix Secure Access client now supports single sign-on for the Workspace URL when already logged in via Citrix Workspace app. This SSO functionality enhances the user experience by avoiding multiple authentications.

In case a user is not logged on to CWA or the required store is not configured as a primary store, the Secure Access client proceeds with authentication.

The following figure displays the SSO flow between the Citrix Workspace app and the Citrix Secure Access client.
