A what’s new modal window
From version 11.17.2 build 37000, when you launch the Citrix Licensing Manager, a modal window appears that provides information about:
- New features that are available on your Citrix Licensing Manager
- Features that are already available, but currently disabled on your Citrix Licensing Manager. You can enable these features directly from the modal window.
For example, the Citrix Licensing Manager automatically detects that your License Server isn’t registered with Citrix Cloud and prompts you to register.
Citrix recommends that you enable features that are disabled, when prompted. Doing so enhances your user experience and improves the way you monitor your license usage.
The Citrix Licensing Manager also displays alert messages for network-related issues and recommends steps to mitigate them.
