Disable webPass from prompting for credentials for a link

Disable webPass from prompting for credentials for a link

We have run into a handful of instances, where a customer has a Standard Link that points to the same address as one of the webStore definitions.

For example, we have customers using the SAML integration with Google, and have a Standard Link created for the drive.google.com address.  As this address also exists in a webStore definition for an app, the users are prompted to set credentials for the Google Drive app in the webStore.

To deal with instances like this, where a customer might have Standard Links using addresses that are in a webStore app, we have added a feature on link objects to disable the webPass credential prompting.

On any links that you find share an address with a webStore app (webPass prompts you to save credentials for a link it shouldn't be prompting for), you can select the "webPass Credential Prompt" - DISABLE option (found on the link's OPTIONS tab).
This will prevent webPass from prompting a user to fill in webPass credentials for the link, if it were to point the same address as an app in the webStore.

webNetwork 6.3.0.150 or higher is required for this option to be present.
