Citrix Receiver not being automatically detected with Edge v86


Christopher Kiser

Question

Hello All,

 

I have been tasked with configuring/deploying our MS-Edge GPO for thousands of devices and that will include the citrix storefront. I am running into two issue I cant seem to find answers for. Keep in mind we are talking about the new chromium based Edge v86. I have the most current admx files and such.

 

1. Upon the first run, when you navigate to Workspace.domain.com you are prompted to install or detect the Citrix Receiver. All devices have the receiver installed so I assume its just a matter of associating the receiver to Edge ie getting Edge to see it. Is there an Edge GPO responsible for this or does the solution reside in the registry?

 

2. Once you click through, you are prompted,

 

"This site is trying to open Citrix Receiver Launcher.

https://workspace.domain.com wants to open this application.

Always allow workspace.domain.com to open links of the type in the associated app."

 

I have two policies I thought that would take care of that. 

      - UC/Policies/Admin Temp/Edge/ Show an "Always open" checkbox in external protocol dialog" - set to Enabled

      - UC/Policies/Admin Temp/Edge/Define a list of protocols that can launch an external application from listed origins without prompting the user - set to enabled. (I found this solution here: https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX285038) I have the format as stated in the article but maybe I didnt do it correctly?

 

Any help with making a seamless experience for the user to open workspace and it will open without any prompts is the goal here. If i manually accpet all the prompted everything is working perfectly so this is the last piece of the puzzle. I thank you in advance for any help and am still new to GPOs so keep that in mind.

Hi,

 

You might want to configure the "Define a list of allowed URLs" policy like below:

The receiver://* is for Citrix Receiver and Citrix Workspace

 

The msteams://* is for Microsoft Teams

 

I have written a few articles about Edge in Citrix, you might find them helpful:

Hey thank you so much for your response. I actually came across your articles last week and found them very helpful, I have the Enterprise mode working, and all over security baselines, however even with the URL added to the policy I am still prompted for a "install receiver" when I navigate to the workspace storefront. 

 

I have a workaround set now, where my Storefront URL is listed in the Enterprise Mode Site List and opens in the embedded IE11. Is that how you are running it? It seems to be an acceptable solution but not ideal since I know the storefront will work well in Edge. 

 

Regards,

Chris
