Authentication methods

To configure the authentication methods available for a store, see Configure Authentication. You can override some of these settings for a particular website. These overrides only apply to users accessing the store through a web browser. Citrix Workspace app uses the settings from the store rather than the website.

Warning: Any time you change the authentication methods for a store, this overrides the settings for all websites for that store so any changes must be re-applied.

To modify authentication methods, go to Edit Receiver for web site and select the Authentication Methods tab.
