What’s new in 1907

Client drive mapping enhancement

Citrix Workspace app informs the server of the available client drives. By default, client drives are mapped to server drive letters so they appear to be directly connected to the session. These mappings are available only for the current user during the current session.

Note:

This feature is supported only on versions of Android running SDK version 24 and later.

Client drive mapping (CDM) allows plug-and-play storage devices in a session. This means that you can use mass storage devices (For example, pen drives), to copy and paste documents between pen drive and the user device.

Limitations:

  • Android APIs are observed to be slow thereby delaying certain operations.
  • CDM for external storage is not supported on Pixel devices.
  • File type association is not supported on external storage devices.

Known issue:

  • The Workspace app screen might shift between foreground and background when you plug in an external storage device.
