Application templates are XML files used to share application definitions between different Single Sign-on environments. Application templates save time and effort because you can convert them to application definitions with minimal intervention or configuration. Templates require you to provide information to complete the application definition, such as a URL or executable file name, password expiration, and any advanced detection settings.
Install application templates using the Single Sign-on node of the Citrix AppCenter or the Application Definition Tool. Both of these include application templates for commonly-used Windows and Web applications.
Important: To write to an Active Directory central store while running in Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, grant the Application Definition Tool an integrity level of High. Log onto an account that is a member of the local administrators group to start the tool on the system computer as well as be a member of the domain administrators group or have write privileges to the Active Directory objects in the central store. Provide these credentials when running the tool, either at the User Account Control prompt or when logging on to the system. The tool is assigned a High integrity level and can write to the Active Directory.
When an application template cannot be found for an application, create an application definition using the Single Sign-on node of the Citrix AppCenter or the Application Definition Tool.
