Managing the Citrix App Controller

The Citrix App Controller cannot be automatically discovered by eG Enterprise. This implies that you will have to manually add the Citrix AppController into the eG Enterprise system to manage it. Follow the steps below to achieve the same:

  1. Login to the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the components page that appears, select Citrix AppController from the Component type drop-down and then click the Add New Component button.

  6. Then, click the Add button to add the App Controller for monitoring.
