You can also use Microsoft My Apps to test the application in any mode. When you click the Wayleadr tile in the My Apps, if configured in SP mode you would be redirected to the application sign-on page for initiating the login flow and if configured in IDP mode, you should be automatically signed in to the Wayleadr for which you set up the SSO.

Once you configure Wayleadr you can enforce session control, which protects exfiltration and infiltration of your organization’s sensitive data in real time. Session control extends from Conditional Access. Learn how to enforce session control with Microsoft Cloud App Security.
