Citrix Application Icon discovery



Running a discovery for Citrix Application Icon was not clearly documented.


To successfully Discover Citrix Application Icon, the user has to fill in:

  • Entry Point
  • Host
  • Port
  • Icon Path
  • URL

Q: To run the Citrix Application Icon, is there a prerequisite for a XenApp Server and a prerequisite for a Citrix Collector?

A: There is an Entry point where you select either Store Front Components, XenApp, or Presentation server, other than that there is no prerequisite.

Q: Assuming the Citrix Application Icon requires a XenApp or StoreFront, can you explain how the discovery of the Application Icon works? Is an HTTP connection required? What permissions are needed on the Citrix XenApp process?

An example XenApp discovery requires all the below components.

  • Entry point: XenApp or Presentation Server Endpoint
  • Host: <IP-address-of-the-service>
  • Port: 80
  • Icon Path: Notepad
  • URL: http://<IP-address-of-the-service>/Citrix/XenApp
