Creating the Session Profile for Receiver for Web for App Controller

Users connect to Receiver for Web by using clientless access. When users connect by using a web browser and successfully log on, they can access or subscribe to their published applications.

If users connect to StoreFront by using clientless access, they need to download a provisioning file from the Receiver for Web page. Users can also import the provisioning file you provide by email or a USB flash drive. Settings within the provisioning file detect if users log on from within the internal network or from a remote location. If users connect from a remote location, the connection routes through NetScaler Gateway.

If your deployment contains App Controller and NetScaler Gateway only, or contains App Controller, StoreFront, and NetScaler Gateway, you need to configure the App Controller web address as the home page on the Client Experience tab and the Web Interface address on the Published Applications tab.

To create the session profile for Receiver for Web

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gateway > Policies and then click Session.
  2. In the details pane, on the Profiles tab, click Add.
  3. In Name, type a name for the policy.

    1. In Home Page, click Override Global, and then type the web address for App Controller or Storefront.

      For example, enter https://\<StoreFrontFQDN\>/Citrix/\<StoreWebName\>/ where StoreFrontFQDN is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of Storefront and StoreWebName is the name of the store.

      Note: The web address is case sensitive. For example, use https://\<App ControllerFQDN\>/Citrix/StoreWeb.

    3. In Clientless Access URL Encoding, click Override Global and then select Clear. You can also select Obscure or Encrypt as the URL encoding for Receiver for Web. If users connect by using Receiver for Web from an iOS device, you must select Clear.
