Support for Windows 11 in Citrix Provisioning on Azure

Configuration wizard changes for database credentials

The Configuration wizard now always prompts for database administrator credentials, and uses those credentials to configure the provisioning database. You can now select Active Directory Integrated authentication when providing database administrator credentials, which accesses the provisioning database as the current logged in user.

Azure Marketplace

Citrix Provisioning does not support Azure Marketplace images with plan information. For more information, see Citrix Provisioning on Microsoft Azure.

Support for both Customer Managed and Citrix Cloud Delivery Controllers natively from the same Citrix Provisioning Console

Citrix Provisioning now supports working with both customer managed and Citrix Cloud Delivery Controllers natively from the same Citrix Provisioning Console.

While running the Citrix Virtual Desktops Setup and Citrix Provisioning Devices Export Wizard, you can now select either Citrix Cloud or Customer-Managed Control Plane Delivery Controller.
