Citrix Cloud – Analytics – First Steps Connecting local Site

I’ve been working with Citrix Cloud quite a bit over the last year or so and though it’s about time I created some content on what I’ve learned and share some install guides, tips n tricks I’ve picked up along the way.

Currently reviewing the Citrix Analytics service, and it has the added bonus of being able to monitor your local Citrix estate. The service will consist of a few sub services with Security & Operations available at the time of writing but Analytics will follow shortly.

When the site is connected it can also be used for site aggregation as well.

OK lets see how we connect your local Site to your Citrix cloud tenant  to get all these new features.

Prerequisites :

  • Active Citrix cloud subscription with Analytics service enabled
  • Local Citrix Site
  • Some users apps and desktops to use to populate the service with some data
