Technical Details

Before using the License Usage Insights (LUI) service, consider the following items:

  • Only Windows-based and VPX-based license servers are supported.
  • It may take up to 24 hours for a newly updated license server to appear in the LUI service.
  • When usage data is uploaded from a license server, it’s processed and stored in a secure fashion such that it can be accessed at a later date by the LUI service. This process might take up to 24 hours to complete.
  • By default, usernames associated with Virtual Apps and Desktops license checkouts will be securely phoned home to Citrix.
  • Usernames are phoned home so CSP partners can take full advantage of LUI features and the CSP licensing program which supports free users for trial, test, and administrative product use.
  • User information is limited to a single user@domain entry; no additional personal identifiable data is phoned home. Citrix will never share this information.
  • For partners sensitive to uploading username information, this functionality can be disabled on the Citrix License Server using the username anonymization feature.

Supported Citrix products
