Power Automate, with UI Flows, allows anyone to create Robotic Process Automation (RPA) that can replay UI interactions with Web and desktop applications.

We recently announced a new preview feature to record and play back automations on Remote Desktop sessions without the need to install additional software on the remote computer.

We are happy to announce that Citrix Workspace users can now test in Public Preview our new feature which will allow you to record and playback actions from your Citrix remote applications and desktop.

Since UI flows recorder cannot access the logical elements on Citrix during the recording, UI flows uses custom Azure AI technology (image recognition and text extraction from images using Tesseract OCR) to make automation possible.

Update

To test this feature, you will need the following:

  • Windows 10 or Window Server 2016 or 2019 machine
  • The latest version of UI flows running on this machine
  • Citrix Workspace 2002 or above

We are always working to improve the automation capabilities throughout Power Automate.

Please feel free to share your feedback and questions in the Power Automate Community using the “UI flows” label.

Updating Citrix Workspace

You may have noticed that Citrix is in the process of implementing changes announced at Synergy 2018 to unify its product portfolio. Some of these changes are cosmetic, affecting names only, but others contain functional changes. In particular, the new Citrix Workspace App will eventually replace the Receiver, ShareFile (now Citrix Content Management), and XenMobile (now Citrix Endpoint Management) clients, and will provide users with consolidated access to virtual apps and desktops, SaaS and mobile apps, shared content, and secure browsing within the Citrix Workspace ecosystem.

You may have also noticed Receiver has started to update itself to Workspace App on various devices. The user experience is similar to Receiver, should be familiar to users, and is compatible with all currently supported versions of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenApp and XenDesktop) and Citrix Gateway (formerly NetScaler Gateway), but most firms would like to control this behavior. There isn’t much you can do about mobile devices, or home PCs and Macs, but on firm-owned PCs, Receiver updates can be controlled via command line at installation, and via Group Policy after installation.

Unable To Update Citrix Workspace

Most firms choose to disable Receiver updates, then push out an updated version after it is thoroughly tested. That’s the approach Kraft Kennedy recommends, but other options exist including the ability to limit updates to the Long Term Servicing Release (“LTSR”). Currently, that would limit update to Receiver 4.9.
