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.

Remove License Server registration

Removing a registered License Server from Citrix Cloud requires using the Citrix Licensing Manager console. For complete instructions, see Remove registration of your License Server.

After you remove the registration, Citrix Cloud stops collecting usage data from your License Server. However, historical data is still stored. To remove this data from Citrix Cloud, see Remove usage data in this article.

Also, verify that Citrix Cloud no longer displays the License Server on the Product Registrations page. If the License Server still appears in the list, remove the server as described in Remove a product registration in this article.

Remove a product registration

If you remove servers running a registered Citrix product from your environment, the Product Registrations page still displays the servers.

  2. Click the ellipsis button and select Remove registration. Remove product registration
