You can configure delivery settings for Citrix-published resources by editing the ICA properties. For ICA traffic that is routed through NetScaler, you edit the ICA properties in the Catalog > Settings > Citrix Published Applications > NetScaler ICA Configuration or Catalog > Settings > Citrix Published Delivery Groups > NetScaler ICA Configuration tabs. For applications, use Citrix Published Applications > NetScaler ICA Configuration. For desktops, use Citrix Published Delivery Groups > NetScaler ICA Configuration.

About this task

Application delivery settings that are set on individual Citrix resources do not apply to ICA traffic routed through NetScaler.


To edit ICA properties for ICA traffic that goes through a direct connection, and not through NetScaler, see Edit Resource Delivery Settings Globally for All Citrix-Published Resources.


  1. Log in to the administration console.
  2. Select the Catalog > Settings tab.
  3. Select Citrix Published Applications for applications or Citrix Published Delivery Groups for desktops, then select the NetScaler ICA Properties tab.
