To upgrade your Services Manager deployment from Version 11.0 to Version 11.0.1, see CTX138867, "Upgrading CloudPortal Services Manager 11.0 to Version 11.0.1," in the Citrix Knowledge Center.

The ShareFile service supports only the Enterprise customer plan. The service does not support the creation of additional customer or user plans.

Reporting requirements for ShareFile

Important: To ensure usage of the ShareFile service is correctly reported on the distributor report included in Services Manager, apply the fix as described in the Knowledge Center article CTX139274, "CloudPortal Services Manager Distributor Report Incorrectly Reporting Usage," to your Services Manager deployment. This fix is required prior to deploying the ShareFile service.

Requirements for using the service

  • Customers must have a Citrix ShareFile account. If the customer does not have an account, create one at ShareFile.com before provisioning the service.
  • Customers' users must have working primary email addresses specified in Services Manager so they can receive ShareFile account activation emails upon service provisioning.
