Create or remove Citrix resources

Jun 05, 2015

To create a resource

When creating a resource, you have the option to make the resource available to all customers (public resource) or make the resource available to a specific customer (private resource). If you choose to make the resource private, the resource is assigned only to the customer you specify and can be included in application groups only for the same customer. To modify this assignment, you first deprovision the Citrix service for the customer through the Customer Services page. Then, you can modify the resource to assign it to a different customer or make the resource public. After you modify the resource, you can reprovision the Citrix service for the customer.

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > Citrix > Configuration > Resources.
  2. Under Citrix Server Filter, select the location and server collection you want to use for the resource. Any existing resources configured for the server collection appear.
  3. Under Management, click New Resource.
  4. Type the name and description of the new resource
  5. In Allocation, select the Default Resource check box to include the resource in the Citrix services package that is provisioned to customers.
  6. In Access, configure the resource's availability by performing one of the following actions:
    • To make the resource available to all customers, select the Public Group check box.
    • To make the resource available to one specific customer, clear the Public Group check box and enter the name of the customer you want to assign.
  7. In Directory Resource, choose one of the following options:
    • Generate creates and names a security group automatically (e.g., CitrixGrp 3).
    • Search enables you to find and select an existing security group within the domain.
    • Custom enables you to create a new security group with a unique name you specify.
  8. In Publish, select Enabled to make the application group visible to customers.
  9. Click Save to create the application group.
