Controller, you can provide users with single sign-on (SSO) to your mobile,
enterprise, web, and SaaS applications. You can enable applications for SSO by
using the application connector templates found in the App Controller catalog.
You can also enable some applications for user account management.
An application in
App Controller is either a simple or complex application. If you configure a
simple application, you can edit the label or accept the default name. If you
are running multiple instances of the application in your network, you must
change the label to make it easier to identify the application. With some
applications, you can activate an application connector for SSO more than one
time with different names. For example, you can configure the application named
Box twice with the names as Box1 and Box2. If you have already configured an
application, rename the application before you configure another connector.
If you add a
complex application, you can edit the application name and the logon web
address. If the application is an SaaS application, you do not need to change
the web address. If the application is a hosted application in your internal
network, you change the web address to match the deployed application.
You configure an
application connector by providing the following parameters:
- Different names (optional).
For example, you configure two instances of the Box application connector, each
with a unique name. Not all applications allow you to configure multiple
- Description of the
- Web address by using the
fully qualified domain name (FQDN), such as https://app.bill.com.
- Location of the
application, either on the Internet or in your internal network.
- Credentials for SSO. Users
can use the application credentials or Active Directory credentials.
- Category for the
application. Categories allow you to organize applications in Citrix Receiver.
When users log on, they can double-click the category and then start the
- A group of users to which
you want to assign the application.
- Workflow approval settings
for all applications that includes specifying the individuals who can approve
the user account.
- Application policies for
each app you configure in App Controller.
If an application
is available for SSO only, when you finish configuring the preceding settings,
you save the settings and the application appears on the
& Docs tab in the App Controller management console. If an
application is available for user account management, you select the check box
to enable user management and then configure additional settings. The settings

- Automatic account creation
