Can I configure IGEL OS thin client to dashboard/kiosk type to automatically connects to public Citrix Workspace URL?


I am new to the IGEL platform, considering to move from Wyse.

It’s not clear to me whether the below functionality is available in IGEL OS:

Is it possible to set an IGEL thin client to dashboard/kiosk type in such a way so it automatically connects to public Citrix Workspace URL (e.g. “mycompany@cloud.com) and auto logs in & connect to an application using Azure AD authentication?

This is required in the company I work for, so the clients in our remote & international offices without access to our internal network, can automatically connect to internal Citrix apps via Citrix Workspace, using Azure AD authentication.

If not, is there any other way to achieve this with IGEL clients?


Welcome

Yes that’s possible.

One possible way is simply configuring the local Firefox browser for kiosk mode and it auto launching to your public Workspace URL


Thanks Carl for a quick reponse.

Just to confirm, will the client automatically log in to the Azure AD logon prompt with the preconfigured credentials and then start a defined Citrix application?

That’s the issue I have with Wyse clients – they now support Azure AD auth. but are not able to pass credentials to the Azure AD logon prompt, so they cannot be used as dashboards when this type of authentication is used.


Hi David, sorry being late on your question😖

The standard logon process could looks like this (Azure AD answer will come separately):


Thanks Sebastien 🙂
