How Citrix ADM Service Works

Citrix ADM Service is available as a service on the Citrix Cloud. After you sign up for Citrix Cloud and start using the service, install agents in your network environment or initiate the built-in agent in the instances. Then, add the instances you want to manage to the service.

An agent enables communication between the Citrix ADM Service and the managed instances in your data center. The agent collects data from the managed instances in your network and sends it to the Citrix ADM Service.

When you add an instance to Citrix ADM Service, it implicitly adds itself as a trap destination and collects inventory of the instance.

The service collects instance details such as:

  • Host name

  • Software version

  • Running and saved configuration

  • Certificates

  • Entities configured on the instance, and so on.

Citrix ADM Service periodically polls managed instances to collect information.

The following image illustrates the communication between the service, agents, and instances:
