Creating API Client on the Citrix Cloud

Follow the steps below to create an API client on the Citrix Cloud:

  1. Login to the eG agent host.

  2. Then, login to the Citrix Cloud Console as a valid cloud user with Read-only administrator rights to virtual apps/desktops. If you have created a new user on the cloud with the aforesaid permissions (using the procedure outlined in Creating a New Citrix Cloud User for Monitoring Purposes), then login to the cloud console as that user.

  3. Click on the 'hamburger' menu in the upper, left corner of the console.

  4. Select the Identity and Access Management option from the menu. If this option does not appear, you may not have adequate permissions to create an API client. Contact your administrator to get the required permissions.

  5. In the Identify and Access Management page that then appears, click on the API Access tab page (see Figure 1).
