Citrix released a App Request Tech Preview version
Citrix App Request is a Citrix Delivery Services snap-in that enables the self-service application request feature in Citrix Receiver. Through a simple set-up, administrators configure App Request and indicate which applications require an approved request before a user can add them.
When App Request is configured, end users can use Citrix Receiver for Windows version 2.1 or higher to search for applications available from a Citrix XenApp farm and then request access by clicking a Request button. A workflow-based approval process then emails the user request to a manager. A link in the email directs the manager to approve or deny the request. The manager’s response triggers a workflow that processes the response by sending an email to the requestor and updating the Receiver interface. Users can view approved and pending requests in the Receiver window.
App Request includes ready-to-use default workflows. You can use Citrix Workflow Studio to customize the workflows.
Delivery Services provides the infrastructure that enables the next generation of Receiver functionality. This technology preview will allow you to try out new features on the Delivery Services 1.0 platform.
Here is what’s available in the Tech Preview:
App Request – Provides support for enabling the App Request feature on Delivery Services.
PNA Site Support – Allows clients that connect to a PNA Site to connect to Delivery Services instead.
Workflow Studio – If you would like to edit the default workflows to customize the App Request process, you will need Workflow Studio.
