Stop offering provisioning files to users

Sep 12, 2014

By default, Receiver for Web sites offer provisioning files that enable users to configure Citrix Receiver automatically for the associated store. The provisioning files contain connection details for the store that provides the resources on the site, including details of any NetScaler Gateway deployments and beacons configured for the store. To stop offering Citrix Receiver provisioning files to users, you edit the site configuration file.

Important: In multiple server deployments, use only one server at a time to make changes to 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.
  1. Use a text editor to open the web.config file for the Receiver for Web site, which is typically located in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\storenameWeb\ directory, where storename is the name specified for the store when it was created.
  2. Locate the following element in the file.
    <receiverConfiguration enabled="true" ... />
  3. Change the value of the enabled attribute to false to remove from the site the option for users to download a provisioning file.
