About Receiver Storefront
Receiver Storefront consists of services that provide authentication and resource delivery infrastructure for Citrix Receiver:
- The Receiver Storefront authentication service authenticates users to XenDesktop sites, XenApp farms, and AppController. Once a user’s credentials have been validated, the authentication service handles all subsequent interactions to ensure that the user only needs to log on once.
- Receiver Storefront stores enumerate and aggregate the desktops and applications currently available from XenDesktop sites, XenApp farms, and AppController. Users access stores through Citrix Receiver or a Receiver for Web site.
- Receiver for Web sites enable users to access Receiver Storefront stores through a Web page. To access their desktops and applications, users require a compatible version of Citrix Receiver. For users running Windows or Mac OS X, Receiver for Web sites attempt to determine whether Citrix Receiver is installed and, if a suitable client cannot be detected, users are offered the opportunity to download and install Citrix Receiver.
- The Receiver Storefront database records details of users’ resource subscriptions, plus associated shortcut names and locations. When a user accesses a store with application synchronization enabled, the subscribed desktops and applications on the user device are automatically reconfigured so that the configuration is the same as that stored in the Receiver Storefront database.
You manage the Receiver Storefront components with the Citrix Receiver Storefront management console. If you want to perform certain advanced administration tasks, you may also need to edit the Receiver Storefront configuration files.
