Menu path: Sessions > Citrix > Citrix StoreFront > Login

In this area, you can define session-specific login options.

Authentication type: Depending on the Citrix client version, the following types are available:

  • Password authentication: Suitable for on-premises connections; connections via Citrix NetScaler or to a cloud environment may cause problems.
  • Kerberos passthrough authentication: Uses local login data for listing and launching applications. The option enables single sign-on if login with AD/Kerberos is configured on the thin client.
  • Smartcard authentication (StoreFront only, not Web Interface)
  • Citrix authentication mechanism (instead of IGEL), Smartcard disabled
  • Citrix authentication mechanism (instead of IGEL), Smartcard enabled
If you have set an authentication type with smartcard, select the type of card on the Smartcard page.

Additional options include the following:

Use passthrough authentication

☑ Cached login data are used for listing and starting applications.

☐ No passthrough authentication (default)

Auto login

☑ Uses the login data preset on this page when connecting to the server.

☐ Do not log on automatically (default)

User name: Can only be filled in with password authentication

Password: Can only be filled in with password authentication

Session passwords are stored with reversible encryption. Therefore, we strongly recommend not to store the session password on the endpoint device. 

Domain: Can only be filled in with password authentication

Remember username and domain:

☑ Saves the user name and domain from the last login. (default)

☐ The user name and domain will not be saved.

Synchronize Citrix password with screen lock:

☑ Synchronizes the screen lock password with that of the Citrix application.

☐ No synchronization (default)

Relaunch Citrix login after logout:

☑ Automatically shows the login dialog again after logging off.

☐ Does not start the login procedure again. (default)

Start a single published application automatically: This parameter is relevant if exactly 1 published application is provided for the user whose login is configured here.
 The published application is started when the user has logged in.
 The published application is not started on login. (default)

Start following applications automatically after server connection is established: A list of applications to be started in the session.
To edit the list, proceed as follows:

  • Click on to create a new entry. In the Add dialog, give the name of the application.
You can also enter part of the name followed by an asterisk (*).
  • Click on to remove the selected entry.
  • Click on to move the entry upwards.
  • Click on to move the entry downwards.
After a successful login, the associated desktop icon for each available application will be placed on the thin client desktop. All applications whose name matches one of the names given in the Launch following applications automatically after server connection is established area will then be launched.
