Citrix: Custom XenMobile SMS Provider


So, you want to be able to enroll your users onto XenMobile by sending an SMS with all necessary links?

Well, basically, you have two choices off-the-shelf:

  1. XenMobile supports SMS provider Nexmo out of the box. Nexmo is an SMS gateway that you can subscribe to from most countries in this world, and their prices are competitive. So for the easiest integration, just create an account athttp://www.nexmo.com, go into your XenMobile settings, and under “Notification Server,” add an SMS provider with the details from your Nexmo account.
  2. Most SMS gateway providers actually also provide an SMTP interface to their services. So your second choice , which is almost as easy as using Nexmo, is to simply create an SMTP provider, pointing to your internal mail server, and create or modify notification templates. In this case, you would remove the “SMS” option from your notification templates, and set the SMTP recipient to something like:”${user.mobile}@smsgateway.myprovider.com”. In this particular sample, I use the field “Mobile” from the user’s Active Directory object. Using this method, you can easily send SMS’es for enrollment. However, to make this method work, you need to make sure your phone numbers are formatted without spaces and dashes in AD.

If these methods don’t get you where you want, how would you go about configuring a custom SMS provider in XenMobile?
