Imprivata: Seamless Credential Proxy for Published Apps

In certain cases, you may notice that an SSO profile for a Citrix-published app works as desired, but not before a user manually gives focus to the window. I have worked at more than one organization where the extra click was a total deal-breaker, and if you find yourself in need of that seamless experience, you’ll be happy to know the fix is no more complex than a couple of registry settings. One needs to be applied to any and all servers being used to publish the apps (to be sure of a consistent experience), and the other to the receiving clients. Appropriately, we are dealing with “Seamless Flags,” and you can find more information about them in articles CTX112499 and CTX101644 on the Citrix support site.

For quicker reference though, the changes are as follows:

On the server(s):

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Citrix/wfshell/TWI
Value Name: SeamlessFlags
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0x8400

For x86 machines:

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient
Value Name: TWISeamlessFlag
Value Type: REG_SZ
Value: 1

For x64 machines:

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient
Value Name: TWISeamlessFlag
Value Type: REG_SZ
Value: 1

And that’s it! Let me know if this didn’t work for you.

    I mean the architecture of the machines to which the apps are being published, whether they are virtual desktops or physical machines. I perhaps shouldn’t have used the word “endpoint” in my post and have edited to reflect that change. Thanks for pointing that out.
