http.header referer not detected


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

we updated our gateway from 12.1 to 13.0 build 79.64. After that, the login through modern browsers like chrome or firefox is not working anymore. Login through internet explorer works.

After some troubleshooting, we found out, that the expression for the receiverweb policy is "http.REQ.HEADER("User-Agent").CONTAINS("CitrixReceiver").NOT && http.REQ.HEADER("Referer").EXISTS"

 

We removed the part behind && so that the new expression is "http.REQ.HEADER("User-Agent").CONTAINS("CitrixReceiver").NOT"

 

After that change, the login works. Why is the referer not detected with modern browsers like chrome? And why after the upgrade to 13.0 ? With 12.1 all was working fine.

It is a pitty that nobody has an answer to this question.

 

On Link Configure session policies and profiles for Citrix Endpoint Management and StoreFront is the Referer Header still mentioned

 

Citrix Gateway plug-in for Windows; Citrix Gateway plug-in for Mac

REQ.HTTP.HEADER User-Agent NOTCONTAINS CitrixReceiver && REQ.HTTP.HEADER Referer NOTEXISTS

Citrix Workspace app for the Web

REQ.HTTP.HEADER User-Agent NOTCONTAINS CitrixReceiver && REQ.HTTP.HEADER Referer EXISTS

As the user-agent headers mentioned in the citrix kb are outdated (wondering why citrix isn't investigating in updating these articles...) I did research on myself and updated the headers in a list. In my experience I'm always trying to NOT use the "Referer" header as it's outdated. Checkout my post on Blog

Hope this helps!
