  • Next, confirm you can log on to the Citrix environment using Forms Authentication. Eggplant Functional currently supports Forms Authentication. Please contact Eggplant Support if your organization requires use of Federated Authentication or MFA Authentication.
  • Take note of your username and password when logging into the Citrix environment, these will be used in Eggplant Functional to establish the connection.
  • Take note of the storefront url and the name of the application you want to launch, these will be used in the SUT connection details. In the example below, the URL is and the name of the application would be Windows Server 2019Sample Citrix Environment

You do not need to launch the Citrix Workspace app when establishing the connection in Eggplant Functional as it will be handled during the connection process.

Once you have confirmed the prerequisites, you can then install Eggplant Functional for Windows 22.4.


You must install Eggplant Functional after you have installed the Citrix Workspace app in order to set necessary registry keys. If necessary, you can set the registry keys by running the Eggplant Gateway epgw setup command after you have installed Eggplant Functional. See epgw setup command for more details.
