Citrix managed Azure for hosting DaaS workloads. Available in Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops Premium and Advanced services along with Citrix Workspace Premium Plus: Released: Offers fully Citrix-managed DaaS workloads to administrators inside the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Advanced and Premium cloud service offerings. Citrix Workspace is a Citrix DaaS solution hosted entirely in the Citrix Cloud. It is very easy to operate by utilizing the Citrix Workspace App client which gives the same look and feel as if working from a traditional Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops implementation on-premise or in a private Cloud.
we have an environment with Windows Server 2016 and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7.15 LTSR. We have around 25 personal accounts, which are working fine. We have also 5 generic accounts, which are connection over a Citrix Gateway.
For the personal accounts we want to have the Feature Workspace Control configured. For the generic users we want to be able to disable it and have it configured that if someone is logged in, another user receives a message, that there is already a session and he or she can't login because of that.
We tested a couple of things and configured a seperate store in Storefront. To be able to use that store via Netscaler we configured a second Virtual Server with the same url, same cert, but different port (8443 instead of 443). The LDAP policy is restricted to a specific AD security group.
Everything is working like that, but we are not able to have the Workspace Control disabled in the second Store. Does anybody have any expirience with it?
Many thanks for your help.

Citrix Workspace Virtual Desktop
Understanding Keyboard Input To Virtual Desktops
By default, when you use a virtual desktop all key presses are directed to it (not the local computer) with the following exceptions:
- Windows logo key+L is directed to the local computer.
- CTRL+ALT+DELETE is directed to the local computer except in some cases if you use the Citrix Desktop Lock.
- Key presses that activate StickyKeys, FilterKeys, and ToggleKeys (Microsoft accessibility features) are normally directed to the local computer.
- As an accessibility feature of the Desktop Viewer, pressing CTRL+ALT+BREAK displays the Desktop Viewer toolbar buttons in a pop-up window.
- Windows key combinations (for example, CTRL+ESC and ALT+TAB) are directed according to the settings that your help desk has selected.
Note: By default, if the Desktop Viewer is maximized, ALT+TAB switches focus between windows inside the session. If the Desktop Viewer is displayed in a window, ALT+TAB switches focus between windows outside the session.
Hotkey sequences are key combinations designed by Citrix. For example, the CTRL+F1 sequence reproduces CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and SHIFT+F2 switches applications between full-screen and windowed mode. You can use hotkey sequences with virtual desktops in many, but not all, setups. For example, they work with your hosted applications.
