The purpose of this article is to guide new users on how to publish a web application in Thinfinity Workspace. This step-by-step guide will help users through the configuration process and ensure a simple deployment of their web applications.

What is a Web Application Gateway?

In the evolving landscape of digital workspaces, the Web Application Gateway emerges as a pivotal technology within the Thinfinity® Workspace framework. This advanced tool acts as a secure conduit between end users and web-based applications, streamlining access through an HTML5 browser interface. Unlike traditional setups, this gateway eliminates the need for client-side software installations, thereby enhancing user accessibility and maintaining a high level of security.

Central to its functionality, the Web Application Gateway serves as a modern alternative to conventional SSL VPNs and traditional VPNs. By leveraging this technology, Thinfinity® Workspace offers a more integrated and secure approach to accessing web applications. This shift not only aligns with the contemporary needs of digital workspaces but also addresses the inherent limitations and complexities associated with traditional VPN solutions.

Configuring the Web Application Gateway

To configure a web application gateway in Thinfinity Workspace, follow these steps:
  • Open the Thinfinity Workspace Portal and Sign In with your username and password.

  • Once you have signed in, click New Profile.

  • On the Create New Connection screen, select Application and click Next.

  • On the Application type selection screen, select Web App and click Next.


  • Now, you need to select the Web Application Gateway option and then specify the address of the web resource you want to connect to. After entering the URL, you can optionally change the icon image and other options (see below). When you are finished, click Next.

Some websites may require additional settings to work with our Web Application Gateway, please check the following options to see if they apply to your specific needs.
Optimize for SPA
Optimizes the connection to work better with Single Page Applications by masking the virtual path to avoid routing incompatibilities with highly JavaScript-dependent web applications.
Sanitize Input (Prevent XSS)

  • After this, type a profile name and click Done. This will be used as the friendly name for this connection.

  • Finally, save the changes by clicking Commit.

  • Now you can access your web application with Thinfinity Workspace.
