Published Microsoft Edge Browser and SSO to Sharepoint 365 dont work - are prompted for login cred

Henrik Christensen1709154275


Hello guys

My scenario: OS is Windows 10 1909 Multi-session

VDA is 1912 CU2

I want to publish an Edge browser with a sharepoint 365 start page (company intranet). Also, SSO into M365 with no prompts.

This works perfectly when using a published Desktop and also from a published Internet Explorer

It also works in Edge - if the user has made a login to the published desktop just once.

But it dosent work in a seamless published Edge.

Executing a dsregcmd /status in the user context shows all it good


Any ideas are welcome

The solution:


After having created a support case @ m$ we managed to get this solved

Windows 10 build 1909 uses WAM (web account manager) authentication.

Since the issue only happens in a published application scenario, hence currently the only way to overcome this issue is to force OneAuth to be used, instead of WAM.
This can be achieved by publishing Edge with the --force-oneauth command line argument. Below is the configuration to use:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe" --force-oneauth


Hope this helps if encountered by others

Is it still working in IE if you reset the profile? Please look here: https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX127874. For IE in published app this was the issue in many cases, maybe it also adheres to Edge.



Yes, it always works in IE with a fresh profile

I also tried the /AlternateShellStartup with no luck

Also,  valuable info is that Edge is launching fine, but prompts the user for M365 credentials (it should not prompt and does not when run inside a desktop session). And you can't sign in if you try from the page prompt or clicking on the user icon in the top right corner (srndump attached)

Ok, then I guess it's the same like Google Chrome. MS wants you to use their sync and not use roaming profiles. This is a configuration which works for us:


Please check your roaming configuration. First include the following to the list of synchronized folders:





then exlude those folders from synchronization:
