The App-V node is renamed to App Packages and redesigned to accommodate more types of Microsoft packaged apps. Previously, you had to use the discovery module to add App-V apps to Citrix Cloud for delivery. You can now add and deliver App-V apps in one place by using the App Packages node.
Full Configuration now lets you stay up to date on catalog creation and updates. You can gain an overview of the creation and update process, view the history of steps performed, and monitor the progress and running time of the current step. For more information, see Start creating the catalog.
The App Layering management console is being redesigned and modernized to no longer require Silverlight or Internet Explorer, to support modern browsers and plugins, and more.
The blade style is now applied to the final two nodes: Machine Catalogs and Policies. The new wizards appear in blade views with wider viewports, enabling more content to display. The workflows for configuring your settings remain the same.
Using Full Configuration, you can now change the size of MCS-provisioned VMs in Azure environments. The feature applies to both persistent VMs and non-persistent VMs.
In Full Configuration, when you create a catalog, a Hybrid Azure Active Directory joined identity type, is now available in Machine Identities. With that identity type, you can use MCS to create hybrid Azure Active Directory joined machines. Those machines are owned by an organization and signed into with an Active Directory Domain Services account that belongs to that organization.
You can now create configuration partitions within a single Citrix DaaS instance. You achieve that by creating tenant scopes in Administrators > Scopes and associating related configuration objects, such as machine catalogs and delivery groups, with those tenants. As a result, administrators with access to a tenant can manage only objects that are associated with the tenant. This feature is useful, for example, if your organization has independent divisions or separate IT management teams. Also, the Full Configuration interface lets you filter tenant customers by name. By default, the interface displays information about all tenants.
Poor in-session responsiveness is the primary cause for poor session experience. The Anomalous Latency Alerts feature alerts administrators when there is a significant deviation in the session latency values. The proactive alerting helps administrators identify specific locations or Delivery Groups from which poor sessions might be originating.
CSPs have a new permission to control which administrators can view the customer dashboard. This permission only allows you to show or hide the customer dashboard for custom access administrators. Only full access administrators can add new customers.
Citrix Cloud introduces REST APIs to create and consume reports that help you manage licensing in Citrix Cloud.
