Citrix Workspace app configuration

Global App Config service

The Global App Config service is a cloud service for managing Citrix Workspace app configuration. Within your Citrix Cloud account you can claim your store URLs and define the configuration for each of your stores. For more details see Configure settings for on-premises stores.

Store account settings

As an alternative to Global App Config service, you can configure Citrix Workspace app via the store account settings. When a user adds a store to a locally installed Citrix Workspace app, it retrieves the store account settings StoreFront. This can include configuration properties, for instance to tell Citrix Workspace app for Windows whether it should create start menu shortcuts for apps. See the Workspace app documentation for details of properties, for instance Using StoreFront account settings to customize app shortcut locations.

To modify these settings:

  1. Open web.config file in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\Roaming.

  2. In the <Accounts> section, find the element <account ... name="Store" ... > for the store you wish to change.

  3. Under the Account section, find the <annotatedServices>/<annotatedServiceRecord>/<metadata>/<properties> section.

  4. After the <clear/> element, add the properties in the form <property name="[name]" value="[value]"/>. For example:

        <property name="PutShortcutsOnDesktop" value="true"/>
        <property name="DesktopDir" value="Citrix Applications"/>


In multiple server deployments, use only one server at a time to change the configuration of the server group. Ensure that the Citrix StoreFront management console is not running on any of the other servers in the deployment. Once complete, propagate your configuration changes to the server group, so that the other servers in the deployment are updated.
