StoreFront

Federated Authentication Service Configuration

When using authentication methods such as SAML, where the user does not enter their credentials directly into Citrix Workspace app, by default it is not possible to single sign-on into VDAs. In these cases you can use Federated Authentication Service (FAS) to provide single sign-on to VDAs using certificate authentication. To use FAS with StoreFront, you must configure StoreFront using the PowerShell SDK. Use Set-STFClaimsFactoryNames to set the claims factory to FASClaimsFactory and use Set-STFStoreLaunchOptions to se the VDA logon data logon provider to FASLogonDataProvider. For example:

$store = Get-STFStoreService -VirtualPath [VirtualPath]
$auth = Get-STFAuthenticationService -StoreService $store
Set-STFClaimsFactoryNames -AuthenticationService $auth -ClaimsFactoryName "FASClaimsFactory"
Set-STFStoreLaunchOptions -StoreService $store -VdaLogonDataProvider "FASLogonDataProvider"
<!--NeedCopy-->

Substitute [VirtualPath] for the appropriate virtual path, e.g. /Citrix/Store.

To disable FAS for a store:

$store = Get-STFStoreService -VirtualPath [VirtualPath]
$auth = Get-STFAuthenticationService -StoreService $store
Set-STFClaimsFactoryNames -AuthenticationService $auth -ClaimsFactoryName "standardClaimsFactory"
Set-STFStoreLaunchOptions -StoreService $store -VdaLogonDataProvider ""
<!--NeedCopy-->

To configure the list of FAS servers and other settings you must use Group policy. For more details see FAS documentation.
