Configuring Categories

Sep 27, 2015

App Controller enables users to access different types of applications, web links, and stores. When users connect with Citrix Receiver or Worx Home, they can view all of their applications, web links, and stores and then select what they want to open.

When users log on by using Receiver or Worx Home, they receive a list of applications, web links, or stores. By using categories, you can sort items that allow users to access only the applications, stores, or web links that you want. For example, you can have a Finance category and add applications that only pertain to finance. Or, you can configure a Sales category to which you assign sales applications. You can also configure an Apple category for the App Store.

You configure categories on the Apps & Docs page in App Controller. When you configure or edit a store, web link, or application connector, such as Box, during the configuration steps, you can select the category. For more information about adding categories to an application, see Configuring Single Sign-On by Using Application Connectors.
