To integrate a Citrix deployment with the Workspace ONE Access service, you need the following components.

  • A Workspace ONE Access tenant or on-premises instance.
  • A supported version of the Workspace ONE Access connector, installed on premises. You can download the connector from https://my.vmware.com.
  • An Integration Broker instance installed on a supported Windows server on premises. The Integration Broker, a component of Workspace ONE Access, is the component that communicates with Citrix server farms.

    You can download the Integration Broker from https://my.vmware.com.

All communication between the Workspace ONE Access service and the on-premise components is through the connector. The connector and the service communicate over a communication channel that is automatically set up during installation.

Note: Using the latest available version of Workspace ONE Access and its components is recommended.

Before you configure Citrix server farm details in the Workspace ONE Access console, you must complete certain prerequisite tasks. You must deploy and configure the Integration Broker, a Workspace ONE Access component, on a supported Windows Server and set up Citrix PowerShell remoting to enable communication between the Integration Broker and the Citrix server farm.

The high-level tasks for the integration include the following:

  • Prepare the Windows Server for the Integration Broker installation.
    • Add roles and features.
    • Install Microsoft J# 2.0 Redistributable Package.

      Microsoft J# 2.0 is not required if you plan to use the StoreFront REST API instead of the Citrix Web Interface SDK to connect to the Citrix server farm.

  • Install Integration Broker.
    • Download and install the Integration Broker.
    • Configure IIS Manager settings for the Integration Broker.
    • Set up HTTPS bindings for the Integration Broker.
  • Set up Citrix PowerShell remoting to enable remote invocations between the Integration Broker server and the Citrix server farm.
    • If your Citrix deployment is version 7.x or later, install Citrix Studio on the Integration Broker server. Citrix Studio includes the PowerShell SDK. Ensure that the Citrix Studio version is compatible with your Citrix deployment version.

      If your Citrix deployment version is lower than 7.x, install Citrix PowerShell SDK on the Integration Broker server.

    • Enable PowerShell remoting on the Citrix servers (Citrix 6.0 only).
  • Download and copy Citrix Web Interface SDK dll files.

    Citrix Web Interface SDK is not required if you plan to use the StoreFront REST API to connect to the Citrix server farm.
