Citrix Cloud


The Citrix Cloud is a platform that manages and hosts various Citrix cloud services. The Citrix Cloud App for Sumo Logic allows you to keep track of any modifications made to configurations or actions that have affected your environment and other account administrators. This app is built on the Citrix Cloud source, which ensures effortless integration between Citrix Cloud and Sumo Logic. Through real-time analysis, the App offers dashboards to display critical metrics, enabling you to understand administrator, client administrator, and group administrator activities within your Active Directory or Azure Active Directory (AD).

Log types

This Citrix Cloud App uses SystemLog records from the Citrix Cloud. To learn about the Citrix Cloud API fields, see the Event Data Fields documentation.

Installing the Citrix Cloud app

To install the app, do the following:

  1. Select App Catalog.
  2. In the Search Apps field, search for and then select your app.
    Optionally, you can scroll down to preview the dashboards included with the app.
  3. To install the app, click Install App.
  4. Click Next in the Setup Data section.
  5. In the Configure section of the respective app, complete the following fields.
    1. Key. Select either of these options for the data source.
      • Choose Source Category, and select a source category from the list for Default Value.
      • Choose Custom, and enter a custom metadata field. Insert its value in Default Value.
  6. Click Next. You will be redirected to the Preview & Done section.

Your app will be installed in the Installed Apps folder and dashboard panels will start to fill automatically.

Each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results will not immediately be available, updating with full graphs and charts over time.

Viewing Citrix Cloud dashboards

All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard. Use these filters to drill down and examine the data to a granular level.

  • You can change the time range for a dashboard or panel by selecting a predefined interval from a drop-down list, choosing a recently used time range, or specifying custom dates and times. Learn more.
  • You can use template variables to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. For more information, see Filter with template variables.
  • Most Next-Gen apps allow you to provide the scope at the installation time and are comprised of a key (_sourceCategory by default) and a default value for this key. Based on your input, the app dashboards will be parameterized with a dashboard variable, allowing you to change the dataset queried by all panels. This eliminates the need to create multiple copies of the same dashboard with different queries.
