Auto Launch app doesnt work

Hi!

I, an Okta admin of my organization, have created a bookmark app to redirect users to a specific app (or a specific URL). I have checked "Auto-launch the app when user signs into Okta.", but users are still stopped in the /app/UserHome page. If they click the settings on the bookmark app, they can see the checkbox for auto-launching the app is checked, but they are not redirected anyway. 
Am I misunderstanding how this works? Basically, I want all SAML logins to be forwarded to a specific app.

Hi,

When you check “Auto-launch the app when user signs into Okta” for a Bookmark, SWA or SAML app, the app should be automatically opened in a new tab/window (depending on browser settings) once the user logins to Okta user interface.

If that doesn’t happen may be something browser related. You can test using different browsers and, also, check browser settings to make sure is not blocking pop-ups or has other security features on that prevents page auto-loading.

Thank you,
Razvan
