Configuring Single Sign-On with Windows
Users open a connection by starting the Citrix Gateway plug-in from the desktop. You can specify that the Citrix Gateway plug-in start automatically when the user logs on to Windows by enabling single sign-on. When you configure single sign-on, users’ Windows logon credentials are passed to Citrix Gateway for authentication. Enabling single sign-on for the Citrix Gateway plug-in facilitates operations on the user device, such as installation scripts and automatic drive mapping.
Enable single sign-on only if user devices are logging on to your organization’s domain. If single sign-on is enabled and a user connects from a device that is not on your domain, the user is prompted to log on.
You configure single sign-on with Windows either globally or by using a session profile that is attached to a session policy.
