As I am going through my first Citrix Cloud/Workspace/CVAD deployment, I thought I’d blog the process I go through to configure Workspace. This blog post will get updated as I go and discover more about Workspace.

Enable the Workspace URL and then click Edit. Choose a relevant name for your Workspace URL, once it has been Saved, it can take 10 minutes to become available as mentioned below.


Select the authentication method used to sign into Workspace. Configuration of each of these authentication methods is done via the Identity and Access Management section.

Customize / Appearance

/ Preferences

Configure Workspace with On-Prem ADC Gateway

Browse to Access, under the required Resource Location select Configure Connectivity.

To validate the Citrix Gateway is now handling the ICA traffic via Citrix Workspace, log into your Citrix Gateway > select Citrix Gateway > ICA Connections

To validate that the Citrix Gateway is being used I SSH’d into the ADC and run:

You will see hits on this once applications are launched from Citrix Workspace.
