So, we are back with Part 2 of the Citrix NetScaler Unified Gateway blog series (after a little delay whilst i re-built my lab!, note to self – backups !!) and in this article I am going to walk you through integrating your Apps and Desktops into your clienteles access portal for and easier and more streamlined user experience.
In Part 1 – Citrix NetScaler Unified Gateway – Part 1 – Initial Setup I walked you through getting your unified gateway up and running and connected to your back end infrastructure. Now in Part 2 I will walk you through integrating your apps and desktops into the clienteles access portal.
Lets get started.
So, when you log into your gateway you will see that you are shown 3 options:
If you choose option 3 it will take you into your apps and desktops, and option 2 will take you into your clienteles access web resources. What if you want both ! So, if you click on option 2 currently you will get the following screen:
NOTE: No Access to your apps.
This is how the Citrix Wizard for Unified Gateway will configure your portal out the box. To Change that follow these steps.
Log into your StoreFront Server and navigate to the following location
locate the file called web.config
open the file and locate the following text
<add name="X-Frame-Options" value="deny" /> <add name="Content-Security-Policy" value="frame-ancestors 'none'" />
change it to
<add name="X-Frame-Options" value="allow" /> <add name="Content-Security-Policy" value="frame-ancestors 'self'" />
NOTE: There will be 3 entries in the web.config file for this entry. Make sure you change all of them!
New you need to change your NetScaler config. Log into your NetScaler and Navigate to the NetScaler Gateway global settings.
Click on Global Settings and you will be shown all the global options for the NetScaler Gateway
Select “Configure Domains for Clienteles Access”
Select Allow Domains and add your domain to the list, click the + icon
You will see you domain listed, then click OK
Next you need to edit the session profile created by the wizard to show you the tab for Applications. Navigate to NetScaler Gateway – Policies – Session
Click on Session Profiles
Locate the session the wizard will have created with AC_WB_ in the title
Double click that profile to edit it. Then select the Published Applications tab.
Scroll down until you see Web Interface Portal Mode
Put a tick in the box and change it to Compact
Click OK and Save the config.
Log back into your NetScaler Unified Gateway and select the Clienteles Access option
On the left you should see an additional option
This is the option you are looking for !
Click on that option and you should see your apps and desktops
Thats it for part 2 – in part 1 we set up the Citrix NetScaler Unified Gateway and now we have integrated our apps and desktops properly into the interface.
Part 3 will include adding we resources to the gateway and SaaS services.
Hope this helps some of you out, as always comment and share.
