Configuring Groups

You can have groups on Citrix Gateway that are local groups and can authenticate users with local authentication. If you are using external servers for authentication, groups on Citrix Gateway are configured to match groups configured on authentication servers in the internal network. When a user logs on and is authenticated, if a group name matches a group on an authentication server, the user inherits the settings for the group on Citrix Gateway.

After you configure groups, you can apply authorization and session policies, create bookmarks, specify applications, and specify the IP address of file shares and servers to which the user has access.

If you are using local authentication, create users and add them to groups that are configured on Citrix Gateway. The users then inherit the settings for that group.

Important: If users are a member of an Active Directory group, the name of the group on Citrix Gateway must be the same as the Active Directory group.

To create a new group

  1. In the configuration utility, click the Configuration tab and in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gateway > User Administration and then click AAA Groups.
  2. In the details pane, click Add.
  3. In Group Name, type a name for the group, click Create and then click Close.

To delete a group

You can also delete user groups from Citrix Gateway.

  1. In the configuration utility, click the Configuration tab and in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gateway > User Administration and then click AAA Groups.
  2. In the details pane, select the group and then click Remove.
