Enable Citrix Web App Firewall

Before you can create a security configuration, you must enable the Citrix Web App Firewall feature on the appliance.

Points to remember

  • If you are configuring a dedicated Citrix Web App Firewall appliance or upgrading an existing appliance, the feature is already enabled. You do not have to perform either of the procedures described here.
  • If you have a new Citrix ADC or VPX, you must enable the Citrix Web App Firewall feature before you configure it.
  • If you are upgrading a Citrix ADC or VPX from a previous version, you must first enable the Citrix Web App Firewall feature before you configure it.

Note:

If you are upgrading a Citrix ADC or VPX from a previous version, you might need to update the licenses on your appliance before you enable Citrix Web App Firewall. Check with your Citrix representative or reseller to obtain the correct license.
