You can provide VMware Identity Manager users access to Citrix-published resources. Citrix-published resources include applications and desktops within Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop farms. Desktops are also referred to as Citrix-published delivery groups.

When you integrate a Citrix deployment with VMware Identity Manager, VMware Identity Manager users can use Citrix Receiver on their systems and devices to access their entitled Citrix-published resources.

After you integrate VMware Identity Manager with your Citrix deployment, you use the Citrix deployment to manage Citrix-published applications and Citrix-published desktops and to entitle users to those resources. You can then use the VMware Identity Manager administration console to view these Citrix resources and their entitlements.

VMware Identity Manager provides default global application delivery settings for Citrix-published resources. For example, you can edit the settings that control resource streaming and resource security. You can configure the delivery settings globally, for all the Citrix resources in the VMware Identity Manager catalog, or for individual Citrix resources.

VMware Identity Manager also supports Citrix deployments that include Citrix Netscaler. To use the Netscaler feature, you must install Integration Broker 2.4 or later.
