Set up an authentication delegate for Blackberry Dynamics apps

Simple steps to make it easier for users to access and use BlackBerry Dynamics apps

When you make a BlackBerry Dynamics app an authentication delegate, it allows the user to access all of the BlackBerry Dynamics apps on the device simply by logging into the delegate app (for example, BlackBerry Work). As long as the user is authenticated with the delegate app, they are authenticated with all BlackBerry Dynamics apps on the device. BlackBerry recommends making the most used BlackBerry Dynamics app the authentication delegate.
