About Client for MS Exchange

The Client for MS Exchange action determines whether a client is using Microsoft Exchange or ActiveSync protocols. This action includes two default branches: Client for MS Exchange and fallback. The Client for MS Exchange branch indicates that the client uses the Microsoft Exchange or ActiveSync protocol. A client for Microsoft Exchange is not a typical web browser and Access Policy Manager (APM) has the following restrictions on Client for MS Exchange access policy branches.
Behavioral restrictions
  • APM does not attempt to perform authentication retries.
  • A logon page action automatically works in clientless mode. (The access policy must include a logon page action.)
  • Except for the logon page, APM cannot provide responses that require additional user input.
Limited supported actions
Microsoft Exchange devices support only the following actions. Therefore, only these actions are supported on a Client for MS Exchange access policy branch.
  • Authentication actions:
    • AD Auth
    • AD Query
    • Client Cert Inspection
    • HTTP Auth
    • LDAP Auth
    • LDAP Query
    • NTLM Auth
