Ever heard of the Web Interface Session Sharing Key? Probably not but my guess is some companies are having issues with it without knowing. Of course they see sessions are not sharing and even open different sessions on the same XenApp server. I wrote an article about Understanding Citrix Seamless Engine some years ago and the article explains sharing issues with published applications but the Web Interface session sharing key is another story that I will explain here.
The Session Sharing Key plays a role when:
- Using StoreFront/Web Interface site and Citrix Receiver/Workspace App at the same time
- Using StoreFront/Web Interface site to launch a session Desktop and within Citrix Receiver/Workspace App
- Using StoreFront/Web Interface site to launch a VM Desktop (XenDesktop) and within Citrix Receiver/Workspace App
