Advertise and hide stores to users

Sep 22, 2016

Use the Hide Store task to prevent stores being presented to users to add to their accounts when they configure Citrix Receiver through email-based account discovery or FQDN. By default, when you create a store it is presented as an option for users to add in Citrix Receiver when they discover the StoreFront deployment hosting the store. Hiding a store does not make it inaccessible, instead users must configure Citrix Receiver with connection details for the store, either manually, using a setup URL, or with a provisioning file. To resume advertising a hidden store, use the Advertise Store task.

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.
