EUCEUC: Horizon Integrations 2020/21 Day 3Unified Access Gateway Admin integration with Workspace ONE Access (Optional)

Unified Access Gateway Admin integration with Workspace ONE Access (Optional)

In this section we will configure the UAG Admin console to Integrate with Workspace ONE Access

This allows the Administrator to Authenticate using SAML rather than a password. It also facilitates a better Administrator experience as I would not have to concern myself with Password Management and the associated challenges that come with this
