Define the External Browser used for SAML authentication

Hello, I have been trying to figure out how to define which external browser is called for SAML authentication, as the CEF browser is not desired for deployment.
Regardless of which version of PCS, Pulse Desktop Client or Windows 10 is deployed it always calls an instance of Internet Explorer. The system's default browser was never set to IE to begin with and other (usable) browsers are present. Removing IE from the system causes the authentication to fail immediately.

The latest PCS and Client versions that I tested are 9.1R14

My apologies if this was already answered but I could not find a matching thread.

Microsoft recently dismissed Internet Explorer. Is there any plan to change the default browser called by the Pulse Desktop Client?

yes, you can set edge as the browser used for external launch by setting a registry value (please see the 9.1R15 release notes for the information)
