As the Single Sign-on administrator, you can create an application definition or modify an application definition template for each application that you want Single Sign-on to manage for your users. You create application definitions by using the console or the stand-alone Application Definition Tool that can be installed on non-console workstations.
You can also allow users to add their credentials to Single Sign-on for any of their client-side applications that it detects, according to settings in user configurations. The plug-in software can detect and respond to logon changes for most applications, including the following application types:
The plug-in software responds according to application definitions that you create from scratch or copy from existing templates. An application definition:
- Enables the plug-in software to recognize and respond to applications and the forms used by the applications to process user credentials
- Consists of a set of identifiers that establish parameters to accomplish this recognition and response
Within each definition, you create logon and password-related forms required by the application to enable access. The application definition wizards can help you create a definition if you open the application; the wizards can detect the forms and fields of most applications by using Single Sign-on’s window-matching capabilities.
Tip: Single Sign-on includes default application definition templates for a variety of Citrix applications or application features. Additional templates are available by searching the Citrix Support Web site.
