Requirements for Citrix ADM Analytics

Minimum XenApp and XenDesktop versions required for Citrix ADM features

Citrix ADM Feature XenApp / XenDesktop Version
HDX Insight XenAPP 6.5, build 6682 with HRP01
HDX Insight XenDesktop 7.0, build 3018

Note

The Citrix Gateway feature (branded as Access Gateway Enterprise for versions 9.3 and 10.x) must be available on the Citrix ADC instance. Citrix ADM does not support standalone Access Gateway Standard appliances.

Citrix ADM can generate reports for applications that are published on XenApp or XenDesktop and accessed through Citrix Receiver. However, this capability depends on the operating system on which Receiver is installed. Currently, a Citrix ADC does not parse ICA traffic for applications or desktops that are accessed through Citrix Receiver running on IOS or Android operating systems.

Thin clients supported for HDX insight

  • WYSE Windows based Thin Clients
  • WYSE Linux based Thin Clients
  • WYSE ThinOS based Thin Clients
  • 10Zig Ubuntu based Thin Clients
  • IGEL UD3 W7+ (M340)
  • IGEL UD3 W7 (M340C)

Citrix ADC instance license required for HDX insight

The data collected by Citrix ADM for HDX Insight depends on the version and licenses of the Citrix ADC instances being monitored. HDX Insight reports are displayed only for Citrix ADC Platinum and Enterprise appliances running release 10.5 and later.
