Hi Kyle, 

 

The answer depends on your deployment model. There are many Deployment models that could involve Azure. You will get better help from the forum if we know which deployment model you are trying to implement.

 

Below are some common deployment models:

 

1. Traditional on-prem style CVAD environment in the cloud.

In this case, policies can be managed by launching Studio, typically installed on the Desktop Delivery Controller (DDC).

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-virtual-apps-desktops/policies/policies-processes.html 

 

Policies can also be deployed using Microsoft GPO with the installation of the Citrx .admx template(s) on the AD Domain Controllers

 

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/receiver/windows/current-release/configure/config-gpo-template.html 

 

2. Using the full CVAD Service:

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/tech-zone/design/reference-architectures/virtual-apps-and-desktops-service.html#citrix-cloud-virtual-apps-and-desktops-service-cvads 

 

Then you should have access to Studio:

 

Citrix Studio

Studio is the management console you use to configure and manage connections, machine catalogs, and Delivery Groups. Studio launches when you select Manage in the Citrix Cloud console.

 

You should be able to leverage the .admx template(s) in this scenario as well. 

 

3. Using an essentials or related product:

 

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-cloud/citrix-virtual-apps-essentials.html

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-cloud/downloads/xenapp-essentials-deployment-guide.pdf

 

or Citrix Managed Desktops:

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-managed-desktops.html

 

Then you will not have access to studio.

 

If no access to Studio is possible, then GPO is probably your best bet.

 

Hope this helps!

Interesting. I am using "Virtual Apps Essentials Service"

 

I don't see any policy options inside of Cloud console but i manage all of the app publishing and user selection within cloud control. So i assume that #3 is what i'm using?

Yes, #3. So these links are the best to get you up to speed on the deployment configurations possible:

 

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-cloud/citrix-virtual-apps-essentials.html 

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-cloud/downloads/xenapp-essentials-deployment-guide.pdf

 

Likely, the best option is to connect your on-prem AD to your Azure sub and use GPO's to manage policies.

Thanks! it's already connected to azure AD so i believe i just need to get the Citrix ADMX files in and get to configuring.
