Integrate RSS

Integrate with RSS to follow the RSS feed of any chosen online channel. Acting as a news aggregator, Citrix Workspace Microapps allows users to keep track and read the content posted on many different websites in a single place. With this workflow, you remove the need to manually check the website for new content.

For a comprehensive list of out-of-the-box RSS microapps, see Use RSS microapps.

Review prerequisites

Use the following process to enable the RSS. Ensure you meet the prerequisites, and set up the integration in RSS. After you complete this process, your existing level of audit logging persists, including any actions carried out by the use of Citrix Microapps. After you set up this integration in RSS, you will need this artifact to add the integration in Citrix Workspace Microapps:

  • URL

Add callback URLs

Add a custom URL to your instance configuration to grant access to private data and enable OAuth authenticated user actions. The first callback that is listed does not change. The second callback depends on the target application, and can be found in your URL address bar when creating the integration. The section {yourmicroappserverurl} is composed of a tenant part, a region part, and an environment part: https://{tenantID}.{region(us/eu/ap-s)}.iws.cloud.com.

Log in to RSS as an admin and add the following authorized redirect URLs for this integration:

  • https://{yourmicroappserverurl}/admin/api/external-services/com.sapho.services.<>/auth/serverContext
  • https://{yourmicroappserverurl}/app/api/auth/serviceAction/callback

Add the integration to Citrix Workspace Microapps

Add the RSS integration to Citrix Workspace Microapps to connect to your application. This delivers out-of-the-box microapps with pre-configured notifications and actions which are ready to use within your Workspace.

Follow these steps:

  1. From the overview page, select Get Started.

    The Manage Integrations page opens.

  2. Select Add New Integration, and Add a new integration from Citrix-provided templates.
  3. Choose the RSS tile.
  4. Enter a name for the integration.

    RSS connector parameters, name, URL, categories, authentication type, domain, user, password

  5. Enter the Connector parameters that you collected in the previous procedures.

    • Enter a base URL.
    • Optionally, enter a value for Categories.
  6. Select Add.

The Microapp Integrations page opens with your added integration and its microapps. From here you can add another integration, continue setting up your out-of-the-box microapps, or create a new microapp for this integration.

You are now ready to set and run your first data synchronization. As a large quantity of data can be pulled from your integrated application to the Microapps platform, we recommend you use the Table page to filter entities for your first data synchronization to speed up synchronization. For more information, see Verify needed entities. For complete information about synchronization rules, synchronization that does not meet its schedule and veto rules, see Synchronize data.

For more details of API endpoints and table entities, see RSS connector specifications.
