Creating the Session Profile for Receiver for App Controller

Feb 07, 2014

When you configure session policies and profiles for Receiver or Worx apps to connect to App Controller, you configure expressions within the session policies. The User-Agent header must always start with "CitrixReceiver." Receiver versions that recognize StoreFront services protocols must also include a header called X-Citrix-Gateway when accessing the native StoreFront service interfaces.

Note: Citrix recommends using the Quick Configuration wizard to configure these settings. For more information, see Configuring Settings with the Quick Configuration Wizard.

If your deployment contains App Controller and NetScaler Gateway only or the deployment contains StoreFront, App Controller, and NetScaler Gateway, you need to configure the App Controller web address as the home page on the Client Experience tab and in the Web Interface address on the Published Applications tab.
