Using IGEL UMS, starting an app on login automatically. Now I want that the app will start again when someone is closing the windows?


Hello, I am using UMS6, starting an excel on login automatically. Now I want that the excel will start again when someone is closing this windows. Which setting should I set?


Hello, Luke, not sure to get you right.

Could you describe further where you starts your Excel file? I guess not locally on Igel OS, but more on Citrix as a Published App, right?


Yes a published app right!


Well, you could do the Following:

1) Save the Credentials into your profile, in Auto Login: kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/login-27246783.html kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/login-27246783.html

2) Set the Session as Autostart: kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/desktop-integration-27246788.html kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/desktop-integration-27246788.html

3) kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/login-27246783.html kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/login-27246783.html Start following applications automatically after server connection is established, to start the App you want (Case sensitive)

4) Set a command like logoff when Citrix ends like Logoff: kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/post-session-27247360.html kb.igel.com/igelos-11.03.500/en/post-session-27247360.html

Then, as soon as Excel was opened, closed, the device will Logoff/Logon again, starts the CWA, Auto Login and restart Excel.

Hope that helps.


Thank you. Well after logoff the excel comes now. But where do I define to logoff when the excel will be closed by someone?


On Nr. 4, Choose Citrix and logoff as command.


That is working 🙂 thank you so much!


Awesome! Happy to help!
