Simplified SaaS app configuration using a template

SaaS apps configuration with single sign-on on Citrix Gateway is simplified by provisioning a template drop-down menu for popular SaaS apps. The SaaS app to be configured can be selected from the menu. The template pre-fills much of the information required for configuring applications. However, the information specific to the customer must still be provided.

Note: The following section has the steps to be performed on Citrix Gateway for configuring and publishing an app using template. The configuration steps to be performed on the app server is presented in the subsequent section.
