Configuring WebDrive to Auto-connect a Site in Citrix Xenapp (Published Apps) Environments


Startup Flag for WebDrive Running in Citrix XenApp

Question

When running WebDrive in Citrix XenApp environments (published application – not full published desktop), how do I make it so that WebDrive auto-connects at login?

Answer

In the Citrix Published Apps environment, WebDrive would not run with the startup flag by default. This would need to be added, or scripted, with WebDrive. This can be added as a command argument for the published app:

Webdrive --startup
