Preview features

Shows features that are currently in preview. As a Citrix Cloud administrator with full access, you can turn preview features on or off without contacting Citrix. It takes up to 15 minutes for the changes to take effect.

Preview features are recommended for use in non-production environments. Issues found with preview features are not supported by Citrix Technical Support.

Get started

Shows steps that guide you through the initial setup of apps and desktops.

Setup steps are as follows:

  1. Create resource locations

    Resource locations refer to locations that contain applications and desktops that you want to deliver to your users. This step lets you add your resource locations to DaaS and install Cloud Connectors in them. Cloud Connectors serve as channels that authenticate and encrypt all communication between Citrix Cloud and your resources.

  2. Create a host connection

    Hosts are hypervisors or cloud services that are in use in your resource locations. This step lets you specify information that DaaS uses to communicate with VMs on a host. Detailed information includes the resource location, host type, access credentials, storage method to use, and which networks the VMs on the host can use.

  3. Prepare a master image

    A master image includes the operating system, all required applications, and the Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA). VDAs establish and maintain connections between VMs and user devices.

  4. Create a machine catalog

    A machine catalog is a collection of identical single- or multi-session OS VMs that you assign to users. This step lets you create a machine catalog by specifying the provisioning technology, master image, and VM size.

  5. Assign users

    A delivery group is a collection of machines selected from one or more machine catalogs. This step lets you create delivery groups to specify which teams, departments, or types of users can use which machines.

  6. Configure Workspace

    Share the Workspace URL from Workspace Configuration > Access with your users.
