Configure support for connections through XenApp Services URLs

Aug 20, 2014

Use the Configure XenApp Services Support task to configure access to your stores through XenApp Services URLs. Users of domain-joined desktop appliances and repurposed PCs running the Citrix Desktop Lock, along with users who have older Citrix clients that cannot be upgraded, can access stores directly using the XenApp Services URL for the store. When you create a new store, the XenApp Services URL is enabled by default.

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. On the Windows Start screen or Apps screen, locate and click the Citrix StoreFront tile.
  2. Select the Stores node in the left pane of the Citrix StoreFront management console and, in the results pane, select a store. In the Actions pane, click Configure XenApp Services Support .
  3. Select or clear the Enable XenApp Services Support check box to, respectively, enable or disable user access to the store through the displayed XenApp Services URL.

    The XenApp Services URL for a store has the form http[s]://serveraddress/Citrix/storename/PNAgent/config.xml, where serveraddress is the fully qualified domain name of the server or load balancing environment for your StoreFront deployment and storename is the name specified for the store when it was created.

  4. If you enable XenApp Services Support, optionally specify a default store in your StoreFront deployment for users with the Citrix Online Plug-in.

    Specify a default store so that your users can configure the Citrix Online Plug-in with the server URL or load-balanced URL of the StoreFront deployment, rather than the XenApp Services URL for a particular store.
