Adding a Citrix XenDesktop Azure Resource Manager Hosting Connection Manually with ADFS and NetScaler
Wow! What a mouthful of a post title !
So, the purpose of this is to walk you through the process of adding a connection to your Azure Resource Manager Datacenter from Citrix Studio manually.
Following my previous posts about ADFS and MFA I have a on-premises ADFS instance linked to Microsoft Azure Multi Factor Authentication. I want to use this method to authenticate to an Azure AD hosted in the cloud and add a hosting connection to Citrix Studio. Essentially I want the microsoft login to hand off authentication back to my ADFS instance to authenticate the user and deal with MFA.
For context my internal domain name is bretty.local – my external owned domain is bretty.me.uk – my ADFS URL is sts.bretty.me.uk both internally and externally.
