We should be able to release user license when the user is no longer with the company. This could be done by checking if the user is active in Active Directory. With on prem deployment, we could do this using udadmin on the license server.
I have spoken to multiple people who have mentioned this is the only thing holding them back from going cloud. They have too high of turnover for user licensing to make sense. They would either need concurrent licensing or the functionality mentioned above.16 votes
Thanks for the feedback.
We’re working on the license release functionality.
It’s not currently based on the AD user enable/disable, but we do plan to support license release.
In cloud the business rule is 30 day license lease (down from 90 day on-premises).
Stay tuned for license release coming in the near future.
Expand the Current Tenant customisation options which allows XenApp/XenDesktop and License Servers to be split per customer to include Netscaler license SKUs. Being able to allocate a Netscaler to a Customer would be very useful in a multi tenant Service Provider environment4 votes
Thanks for the feedback.
We do have tagging of NetScaler License Allocations in our LUI plan, great to know some partners are waiting for it.
Keep the feedback coming
Want to be able to get the free, paid and total users for each customer when i export to CSV.5 votes
Thanks for the feedback and suggestion – makes sense.
We will revisit our usage export functionality to include the customer context/dimension.

Sometimes we need to manually reboot servers and therefore we need to put the server in maintenance mode. But smart scale disables the maintenance mode after a few minutes.
So the only way to reboot a server is to disable smart scale and then put the server in maintenance mode.
Is there a better way to do this without disabling smart scale?
LUI throws up a little warning on the site to say a license server hasn't checked in for a few days - how about sending an email when this happens? We don't check the site very often so wouldn't have noticed this until towards the end of the month!3 votes
Thanks for the feedback.
We are planning to enable this through a series of LUI and platform features.
1. Ensure that the ‘in-service’ alerts for LUI also bubble up as CC platform notifications.
2. Allow for CC platform notifications to be forwarded to admin emails.
Enable Multi-Factor Authentication for StoreFront on Citrix Essentials11 votes
For now, the only way to manage clients is via administrators, which are able to see all the clients. It would be great if certain users could have permission to manage only the clients created by them, without being able to see clients created by other users.2 votes
It would be nice to configure a scheduled report for Smart Scale which includes estimated savings, machine utilization etc.5 votes
Please add capability to extend the timeout value for Storefront. This is particularly important when using HTML5 Receiver.8 votes
After moving a customer from RemoteApp to XenApp Essentials I wonder if the following features will be available in the near future:
- assign users / groups specific to an application
- granular access inside xenapp.cloud.com for example only access to the "Manage" folder for help desk personal
- customize the Storefront website
- start / shutdown the master image server directly from xenapp.cloud.com
- create a snapshot of the master image server directly from xenapp.cloud.com
Last but not least; does there a road map exist with planned features in the near future?13 votes
In the Citrix StoreFront page, each app has a link called "Details" next to it. When click on the "Details" link, it'll navigate to an empty page with the icon.
Can we have the ability to add content to this page so it is possible to use the page to describe the application?
It would be helpful if Smart Scale would have an option which would allow a number of machines based on Zones. Like if we would want to have x number of machines powered on per Zone. And to be able to set separate schedules per zone.5 votes
When creating machine catalogues I notice that the keyboard changes from the studio default (UK) to US and this makes it difficult to enter UK characters such as \ and # into passwords and dialogues, could the current keyboard type be passed through4 votes
We as customer dont use KMS server for activation Office for our users. We are using Office 365 cloud activation service (Each installation is activated and kept activated automatically by cloud-based services associated with Office 365)
But your backend system dont know about this type of activation and everytime VDA VM template image should use workaround if Office 365 Pro Plus should be installed. Now we are suing workaround as described here

At this moment very inconvenient to copy files for VDA remote session from client pc to remote pc. Please improve like it works in classic MS RDS session15 votes
If you use a mandatory proxy server in your resource group deployment fails because of missing internet connectivity. There is no chance to deploy the proxy configuration via GPO or login script because deployment didn't start without internet.
It's a good idea to provide a configuration for the machines created from Citrix Cloud to add some important information (proxy settings in that case)3 votes
Currently these 2 useful features cannot be enabled in XenApp Essentials due to the Deployed Netscaler being locked down and therefore DTLS which is required cannot be enabled.
Can you please make it so DTLS is enabled by default or is configurable please?15 votes
