Configure your environment for Citrix Receiver for Android

Nov 12, 2015
Before your users access applications published on your XenApp or XenDesktop deployment, configure the following components in your deployment as described here.
  • When publishing applications on your farms or sites, consider the following options to enhance the experience for users accessing those applications through StoreFront stores:
    • Ensure that you include meaningful descriptions for published applications, as these descriptions are visible to users in Citrix Receiver.
    • You can emphasize published applications for your mobile device users by listing the applications in Citrix Receiver's Featured list. To populate the Featured list on Citrix Receiver, edit the properties of applications published on your servers and append the string KEYWORDS:Featured to value of the Application description field.
    • To enable the screen-to-fit mode that adjusts the application to the screen size of mobile devices, edit the properties of applications published on your servers and append the string KEYWORDS:mobile to value of the Application description field. This keyword also activates the auto-scroll feature for the application.
    • To automatically subscribe all users of a store to an application, append the string KEYWORDS:Auto to the description you provide when you publish the application in XenApp. When users log on to the store, the application is automatically provisioned without users needing to manually subscribe to the application.
    • When publishing the Remote Desktop (RDP) application for the Android, to ensure the shift-key works properly on user devices, append the string KEYWORDS:unikey to the value of the Application description field. This keyword causes Receiver to send keystrokes using an alternate mechanism that allows the Caps Lock key to work.

    For more information see the StoreFront documentation.

  • If the Web Interface of your XenApp or XenDesktop deployment does not have a Web site or XenApp Services site, create one. For instructions on how to create one of these sites, see the "Configuring Sites" topics for Web Interface 5.4.
