Configuring Citrix Self-Service for kiosk mode
– from Scout 15 21071 –
The eLux package Citrix Workspace-App for Linux must be installed on the devices.
For modifications on the Citrix dialog design, further feature packages must be installed on the devices:
This may require modifications of the image definition file on the web server via ELIAS.
For Citrix Self-Service, first configure the settings, see below.These apply to all stores.
In the Kiosk mode / Citrix Self-Service dialog, ceate a new store.To do so, click New.
Edit the new store:
Option Description Name Display name of the Citrix-Store Store URL Web page (URL) that opens immediately after starting the browser Autostart resources List of Citrix applications/desktops you want to start automatically after logon
Currently only available in combination with the MultiStore option
Confirm with OK.
If multiple stores are defined, users can switch between stores using the Store button on the system bar (store selector).Stores marked as favorites are displayed with an asterisk.If MultiStore is configured, users can switch between stores via the logon dialog.For further information on the MultiStore option, see below.
Self-Service settings for kiosk mode
To access the general settings, in the Kiosk mode / Citrix Self-Service dialog, click Settings.
You no longer have to group stores into environments.
The MultiStore option allows you to predefine multiple stores - optionally in different domains.Define one of the stores as the default store.Users are then presented with a Citrix Self-Service logon dialog from which they can choose between the preconfigured domains and stores.The default store is pre-selected as the Home location with its domain.
If you have defined auto resources for a store, the specified desktops or applications are started automatically after logon.
The store selector on the system bar is not available to the users.To switch to another store, users log off and return to the logon dialog.
Note the following for configuration:
Define one domain as a minimum.
If you define multiple stores, one store must be set as the default.
Logon with passthrough is not available.
We do not recommend combining MultiStore with Shared User Mode.
Domain definition is required if you use MultiStore or – without MultiStore – if you configure Passthrough for Active Drectory.
In the Self-Service / Settings dialog, click New to create one or more domains.Then edit the new entries.
– only MultiStore –
A helper URL links to an existing password reset page.To access this page, users click a button in the MultiStore logon dialog.
You can define one helper URL per domain.This is normally done when you define a domain.
To configure the button for the users and the behavior of the browser with reset page, use the Helper dialog.
In the Self-Service / Settings dialog, under Domains, click Helper.
|Button text||Button label in the MultiStore logon dialog
Example: Forgot password?
By default, this text is additionally shown in the browser title bar above the reset page.
|Timeout||Timeout for launching the Bultin browser and loading the password reset page|
|Options||Optionally, specify additional parameters for the browser start.
Example: --title "Reset password"
If users do not remember their password, they click the relevant button in the MultiStore logon dialog.This launches the Builtin browser and loads the helper URL defined for the domain the user is logging on to.
