Need help with Citrix and Password Manager

We have an environment running Xenapp 5, 6.5 and 7.x
We have now win 7 running on al desktops and when they login  and try to go an app that requires a login and password, they get a box that comes up in the lower right hand corner asking them if they want to save this password now, later, or never. (password manager)
We are now testing with win 10, but the single sign on works but the password box in the lower right hand side does not pop up.
The users like this option but I am not sure how to get it to work with Win 10??

Pretty sure Password Manager is deprecated by Citrix now. They recommend using a solution like Imprivata for single sign-on should it be required.

Windows 10 has the Notification Center, which I am fairly sure the old version of Password Manager will not integrate with.

So there is nothing from Citrix that takes the place of Password Manager?

As I mentioned the single sign on piece works but with win 10 you don't see the box popping up like it does on win 7 with password manager asking if you want to save your password..

Imprivata is the Citrix-ready solution that they recommended, last I checked, but the difference is it is a separate product, not part of the Citrix entitlement.

Yes windows 10 routes the pop-up toasts through the Notification Center rather than through the shell like windows 7

So there is no way of seeing that pop up message then in win 10, is that correct?

Having done some work on integration with the Notification Center in Windows 10 I would hazard a guess that password manager would need an update to be windows 10 compatible. As I believe it is no longer maintained, I wouldn't think an update would be forthcoming. There are many single sign on solutions available, but I believe Imprivata 's has the Citrix ready stamp (whatever that means!)

Ok I guess I am a little confused by the single sign on and password manager..
I thought the single sign on was one piece, which we seem to have working in win 10, and then the password manager that pops up that goofy box asking the users once they login to an app, if they want to save that password now, later, or never..

Password manager as I remember has two facets - the login piece which offers to reset passwords with questions, and the credential manager that can save logins for applications and websites. They are both part of the same product as I remember - five years since I used it though, but pretty sure that's how it worked.

Good chance the logon part still works because that hasn't changed in Windows 10 but the pop-ups have definitely been handed onto the Notification Center modern app.

So is that what that third party product your referred to will do?
The same 2 pieces like password manager did or am I barking up the wrong tree?
If not is there anyway to have the users have the same experience with the ability to have the 2 parts as they did with password manager with win 10?
Sorry for so many questions just trying to understand this mess.. :)

I think the Imprivata solution does both pieces of the original password manager.
