VMware Identity Manager synchronizes Citrix-published applications and desktops, and user entitlements, from the Citrix server farm to the VMware Identity Manager service. You can set a sync schedule to sync the resources and entitlements at regular intervals.

The Citrix farm is the single source of truth for all supported operations in VMware Identity Manager. You manage the resources and entitle users to them in Citrix.

When resources or entitlements are added, changed, or deleted in the Citrix farm, the information is updated in VMware Identity Manager after a sync.
