Citrix Cloud

Register on-premises products with Citrix Cloud

You can easily register your on-premises Citrix product using short-code activation through Citrix Cloud. Depending on your product, this 8-digit code might be generated during the product installation process or when you run the product’s management console. When the product prompts you to register, the product requests the code from Citrix Cloud and displays it. You can then copy and paste this code or enter it manually in Citrix Cloud.

After registration, the Product Registrations page (Identity and Access Management > API Access > Product Registrations)displays the servers where your registered products reside.
