Non-SSO authentication

This article provides guidance on how to enable non-SSO authentication on the Linux VDA.


By default, the Linux VDA has single sign-on (SSO) enabled. Users log on to Citrix Workspace app and to VDA sessions using one set of credentials.

To have users log on to VDA sessions using a different set of credentials, disable SSO on the Linux VDA. The following table lists combinations of user authentication methods supported in non-SSO scenarios.

Citrix Workspace app VDA session
user name user name
smart card user name
user name smart card

Disable SSO

Run the following command on your Linux VDA:

/opt/Citrix/VDA/bin/ctxreg create -k "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Citrix\WinStations\tcp" -t "REG_DWORD" -v "fPromptForDifferentUser" -d "0x00000001" --force
