Setting Default Global Authorization

To define the resources to which users have access on the internal network, you can configure default global authorization. You configure global authorization by allowing or denying access to network resources globally on the internal network.

Any global authorization action you create is applied to all users who do not already have an authorization policy associated with them, either directly or through a group. A user or group authorization policy always overrides the global authorization action. If the default authorization action is set to Deny, you must apply authorization policies for all users or groups in order to make network resources accessible to those users or groups. This requirement helps to improve security.

To set default global authorization:

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand Citrix Gateway and then click Global Settings.
  2. In the details pane, under Settings, click Change global settings.
  3. On the Security tab, next to Default Authorization Action, select Allow or Deny then and click OK.
