Citrix: Introducing Remote PowerShell SDK v2 for Citrix Cloud
The latest release of the Remote PowerShell SDK simplifies authentication with Citrix Cloud. Now, it’s easier to create fully automated scripts, like scheduled tasks, and more convenient to authenticate.
Introducing credential profiles
The Remote PowerShell SDK now allows administrators to create and manage a set of securely stored credential profiles.
There are four credential profile types: one for on-premises and three for the cloud. Each type supports an authentication method.
- OnPrem: Kerberos authentication, for communicating with on-premises Delivery Controllers.
- CloudCas: Prompt for username/password for each PowerShell session.
- CloudAPI: Customer ID and API key / secret stored in the user’s Windows profile.
- CloudToken: Customer ID and current bearer token, not persisted across PowerShell sessions.
To create a CloudAPI profile that bypasses the manual Citrix Cloud authentication dialog, you must first create a Citrix Cloud API Access Secure Client. This operation can be found in the Citrix Cloud console, under “Identity and Access Management.” Downloading your Secure Client saves a file named secureclient.csv, which should be kept in a safe location.
