For each of these connection methods, the user experience is as follows:

AppStream 2.0 API

In the AppStream 2.0 client sign-in page, users enter the streaming URL that you created as the web address, and then choose Connect.

SAML 2.0

If you use SAML 2.0 to federate your users to an AppStream 2.0 stack, you must create a registry value to configure the AppStream 2.0 client with a prepopulated URL whenever the client is launched. The URL must use a certificate that is trusted by the device. The certificate must contain a Subject Alternative Name (SAN) that includes the URL's domain name. For more information, see Set the StartURL Registry Value for AppStream 2.0 Client Users.

User pool

In the AppStream 2.0 client sign-in page, users enter the URL that was provided in your welcome email, and then choose Connect.
