Where is the "settings" functionality for APM Citrix?

In the Citrix Netscaler there is a section where the user can configure the behavior of the Citrix connection ie:

Settings Cancel Save General

Configure settings that are applied across the whole Web site

    Show Hints (Full Graphics only)

Logon behavior

Logoff behavior

    Log off all sessions Context-sensitive Help
    Logoff action

    Log off all sessions
        Select this option to shut down all your currently active resources when you log off from the Web site. If you clear the check box, any active resources continue to run when you log off.

    Note: This setting applies to online resources only; that is, resources that are hosted on a remote server. Offline applications always continue to run when you log off from the Web site.

Configure the behavior of the Reconnect button

Reconnect: Select the sessions to reconnect:
    Context-sensitive Help
    Reconnect sessions

        Select this option to enable the Reconnect button. Specify which sessions you want to reconnect by choosing the appropriate setting from the list.
    Disconnected sessions only
        When the Reconnect button is clicked, you are reconnected only to resources that were suspended when you disconnected your previous session.
    All active and disconnected sessions
        When the Reconnect button is clicked, you are reconnected to all your active resources, plus any resources that were suspended when you disconnected your previous session.

    Note: This setting applies to online resources only; that is, resources that are hosted on a remote server. Offline applications cannot be reconnected.

how can the citrix web interface determine that the session is being handled by the F5 APM as a gateway? Does the F5 APM present itself as a NetScaler Access Gateway so we could use the same logic? We need to set a different policy for those users coming in remotely via F5 APM. I could also see an advantage in the future for it to provie more refined information if the F5 was supporting more than one access method, for example. thanks.

Hi Benjamin,

First of all, I believe you refer to Citrix Web Interface site settings rather than Netscaler. Netscaler does not have these settings.

The answer depends on how you use APM. You can use APM in the following two modes:

  1. APM integrates with Web Interface. In this mode you configure the settings in the same place - at Web Interface. All settings are supported.
  2. APM replaces Web Interface. In this mode APM either uses pre-configured settings or takes settings from Citrix XML Brokers.

In the latter case:

  • Logoff behavior. As a security device, APM always disconnects user's sessions when user logs out from APM
  • Reconnect button. There is no reconnect button on APM Webtop (APM-hosted web site that replaces Citrix Web Interface site). User just needs to start any application on APM Webtop and his disconnected applications will be reconnected.
  • Native Client is used by default unless you configure APM to use HTML5 client. APM Webtop does Automatic Client Detection similar to Web Intrface
  • Window size. APM always uses seamless as the de-facto best user-experience option.
  • APM also supports custom settings that you can configure via Citrix resource.
