StoreFront 1906

StoreFront 1906 includes the following new features. For information about bug fixes, see Fixed issues.

StoreFront Protocol Handler Support now includes Linux

When users on supported Linux platforms open a Citrix Receiver for Web site, and Citrix Workspace App for Linux 1903 or higher is installed, the browser automatically opens ICA files using Citrix Workspace App for Linux at launch. The client detection work flow for Linux, which determines whether Citrix Workspace App for Linux is installed, is now identical to Citrix Workspace App for Windows and Citrix Workspace App for MAC clients when Chrome and FireFox browsers are used. In previous releases, users on Linux were required to manually open a downloaded ICA file first.

Citrix Analytics service

You can now configure Citrix StoreFront so that Citrix Workspace App can send data to the Citrix Analytics service. Citrix Analytics aggregates metrics on users, applications, endpoints, networks, and data to provide comprehensive insights into user behavior. To enable this feature, import a configuration file from the Citrix Analytics service into a StoreFront server or server group using new PowerShell cmdlets. This enables all stores to communicate with the Citrix Analytics service. Configuration details are described in Citrix Analytics service. PowerShell details are provided in Citrix StoreFront 1906 SDK PowerShell Modules.

This functionality is supported for the following scenarios:

  • Stores which are accessed by browsing to Citrix Receiver for Web sites in HTML5-compatible browsers. CAS data is supplied when launching resources using either the native Citrix Workspace app or using HTML5.
  • Stores which are accessed from Citrix Workspace app 1903 for Windows or later.
  • Stores which are accessed from Citrix Workspace app 1901 for Linux or later.

StoreFront SDK PowerShell Modules updated

The Citrix StoreFront SDK PowerShell Modules are updated and republished as version 1906. Changes include new PowerShell cmdlets to support the Citrix Analytics service. See Citrix StoreFront 1906 SDK PowerShell Modules.
