You can see the Citrix-published applications and desktops to which your VMware Identity Manager users and groups are entitled. Desktops are referred to as delivery groups in the VMware Identity Manager administration console.

About this task


You cannot use VMware Identity Manager to make changes to your Citrix deployment. If a Citrix administrator makes any changes, such as entitling new users to a Citrix-published resource, or adding a new server farm, you must force a sync to propagate the changes to VMware Identity Manager.


Verify that VMware Identity Manager is integrated with your Citrix deployment. See Providing Access to Citrix-Published Resources.

Synchronize information, including entitlements, from your Citrix deployment to VMware Identity Manager. You can force a sync with the following steps:

  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager administration console.

  2. Select the Catalog tab.

  3. Click Manage Desktop Applications and select Citrix Published Application from the drop-down menu.

  4. In the Published Apps - Citrix page, click Sync Now.


  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager administration console.
  2. View user and group entitlements to Citrix-published resources.

    Citrix-published resources include Citrix-published applications and Citrix-published desktops, also referred to as delivery groups.



    View the list of users and groups entitled to a specific Citrix-published resource.

    1. Click the Catalog tab.

    2. Click Any Application Type and select Citrix Published Applications to view applications or Citrix Published Delivery Groups to view desktops.

    3. Click the name of the Citrix-published resource for which you want to list entitlements.

      The Entitlements tab is selected by default. Group entitlements and user entitlements are listed in separate tables.
