GlobalProtect - Azure AD SAML Integration - Login inconsistent

L1 Bithead


We have Azure AD setup and running with the Palo.  It works....sort of.


The issue.  When using Microsoft Edge (chromium/latest version) as the default browser, when global protect goes to connect, the login will just hang on trying.  If you click on "click here" after the one of the authentications on the screen, the vpn will authenticate.


If i make firefox the default browser and repeat the login, no problems.  Seems to work flawlessly the 20 times I tried.


Is there any documentation or requirements for Edge to pass anything over to GlobalProtect that might be getting blocked?


Any ideas on where to look.  Have had a ticket opened with TAC for quite some time and have to get this figured out.

Setting Use Default Browser for SAML authentication to "NO" also fixes the issue, but don't know if that is the correct path.

Well, TAC dumped me to the curb saying it isn't their problem that Microsoft Edge isn't passing to GlobalProtect.  Only option to make this work is to turn off Default Browser.
