Launching Global Protect from Microsoft myapps portal

L1 Bithead

We currently have our palo firewalls tied to Azure SAML for our vpn users. These users multi factor authenticate through azure. When clicking global protect from the taskbar, it opens and users are able to connect. What I would like to do is point users to the portal, show the palo app, users click this app and it launches the global protect on the device. Is there a way to do this?

If I understand the request properly, there's not a way to get this to function as you want. While some applications have a function to allow it to act on a link, GlobalProtect does not have that same functionality.

I think you are right. After looking at all the settings. Also had someone on reddit say the same. I appreciate the reply.
