Pulse Client Default Browser

Hi there Pulse Community!  We're working on integrating Pulse Secure Client with SAML 2.0 and Okta.  We have it mostly working, but I had a question on the browser that the client uses.  On most of our systems, we default their browser to Chrome, but they also have Legacy Edge (Soon to be Chromium Edge), & IE loaded on their system. When the Pulse Client attempt to do the SAML assertion, it pulls up Internet Explorer every single time.  It doesn't appear to be a configurable setting.


What I'm trying to find out is

  1. With Microsoft planning to move away from Internet Explorer, does anyone know if Pulse Client is planning to move away from defaulting to Internet Explorer?
  2. Does anyone know of an existing way to use a different browser (e.g. Chrome or Edge)?

Thanks everyone!


Re: Pulse Client Default Browser

@robg3381 Pulse Client does have Embedded browser feature to take care of that.


If you have the latest Pulse client version (9.1Rx) and server version running 9.0Rx, then you should be seeing SAML embedded browser being used for SAML auths without any extra configuration.
