Enabling CWA passthrough authentication with nFactor



We recently switched our Citrix Gateway from basic authentication policies to an nfactor authentication profile. This has broken the Workspace App passthrough authentication on our domain connected Windows machines. You are now prompted for authentication when launching CWA.


The nfactor flow is LDAP > RADIUS MFA 

Login schema for the initial factor is using a lightly modified SingleAuthDoPush.xml


CWA v2105


Does CWA support passthrough authentication with an nfactor authentication server?

They are a mix of internal and external machines.


The GPO has "Single Sign-on for NetScaler Gateway" enabled as well as "Enable pass-through authentication" and "Allow pass-through authentication for all ICA connections". It is configured with the FQDN of the gateway which is GSLB load balanced between two sites.


This all worked with basic authentication policies but stopped when I switched to nfactor. Users are now presented with the authentication vserver HTML form-based login screen rather than the native CWA login prompt.
