StoreFront application

By using the application type StoreFront, users can connect to a Citrix StoreFront server. Virtual desktops and published applications are aggregated and provided through stores. The Citrix products mainly used are XenApp and Citrix XenDesktop. StoreFront sites can be accessed via HTTP or HTTPS.

The StoreFront application enables users to access Citrix resources of one or more stores together with other configured applications, such as RDP or Browser sessions by using only one interface – the eLux RP 6 User Interface. For further information, see eLux RP 6 User Interface.

Defining a StoreFront application

HTTPS connections require the relevant Certificates on the device.

  1. Add a new application (see Adding applications) and select the application type StoreFront.

  2. Edit the following fields:

    Option Description
    Name Name of the application shown in the Scout Console
    Use Provisioning File (.cr)1 Enter the Citrix store provisioning file name without the file name extension. The Provisioning file must be located on the device in the directory /setup/ica/. For further information, see StoreFront / Store provisioning file.

    This option excludes the specification of Store URLs (next option).

    Stores Specify the URL of one or more stores
    • Click Add and replace the automatically created default value by your individual value (double-click or F2)

    Example: (

    This option excludes the use of a Provisioning file (previous option).

    Logon The user is automatically logged on to the store by using the specified credentials (username, password, domain).
    Pass-through logon The user is logged on to the store via single sign-on. The AD user credentials are used.

    If AD users log on via smart card, and if Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.4.x or later versions are used, the authentication method Domain pass-through on the Citrix server must be disabled.

    If you want to use predefined credentials or pass-through authentication, the eLux package Citrix Extensions and the included feature package Dialog Extension must be installed on the devices.

    For further information, see StoreFront / Authentication.

    Show last user The user credentials (except for password) of the last logon are displayed in the XenApp logon dialog.
    This option has no effect if you specify fix user credentials for automatic logon under Logon.
    Autostart Specify the names of those StoreFront applications you want to have started automatically. Make sure to spell the names exactly as in StoreFront. Separate multiple application names by semicolon.
    Example: MyApp1;MyApp2

    If only one resource is defined for a store, alternatively use the free parameter AutostartUniqueResource=true2

    Application restart
    Start automatically
    Desktop icon

    See Adding applications

    Free parameters (optional) Individual parameters for application start

    For further information, see Defining free application parameters.

  3. To delete an entry from the Stores list, select the entry and click Delete.

  4. To configure further settings, click Advanced and edit the following fields:

    Option Description
    Windows properties Desktops can be launched in full-screen or window mode.
    Timed logoff To enable automatic logoff from the StoreFront server, select the Logoff after option and specify a delay in seconds. Automatic logoff does not affect the launched desktop.

    Alternatively, automatic logoff can be configured to be performed after the last StoreFront application has been closed.

    Application reconnection Determine the actions to be done on a reconnect to the StoreFront server

    Do not reconnect: The connection to the desktop or the published applications is not restored (default).

    Disconnected sessions only: The connection to a disconnected session is restored.

    Active and disconnected sessions: The connection to a disconnected or active session is restored.

    Manual logoff Determine the actions to be carried out upon logoff from the StoreFront server

    Logoff only server: Logoff is performed only from the StoreFront server

    Logoff server and applications: Logoff is performed from the StoreFront server and from the virtual desktop or published applications.

    Logoff server and disconnect session: Logoff is performed from the StoreFront server but the virtual desktop session is only disconnected. This enables the user to reconnect later on.

    Access to the advanced settings can be defined via the object rights.3

  5. Confirm with Apply and OK.

After users have logged on to a StoreFront server or Web Interface server, they can show all provided resources by double-clicking the StoreFront icon on the eLux desktop.
