Direct download link for Citrix Workspace

I'm trying to script a direct download of Citrix Workspace so I don't have to manual update the pkg for each patch.

Unfortunately, the download link is a redirect, and the URL changes regularly. Does anyone know the URL for a direct download?

My current script does this:

#!/bin/sh

curl -L -O "https://downloads.citrix.com/16002/CitrixWorkspaceApp.dmg?__gda__=1559853370_f26ea92eb50e024708c1e0cb9dc29474"

mv CitrixWorkspaceApp.dmg?__gda__=1559853370_f26ea92eb50e024708c1e0cb9dc29474 /tmp/CitrixWorkspaceApp.dmg

hdiutil attach /tmp/CitrixWorkspaceApp.dmg -nobrowse

installer -pkg "/Volumes/Citrix Workspace/Install Citrix Workspace.pkg" -target /

citrixmnt="$(hdiutil info | grep "/Volumes/Citrix Workspace" | awk '{ print $1 }')"

hdiutil detach $citrixmnt

rm -f  /tmp/CitrixWorkspaceApp.dmg

@ncats_lab Really.. i'd use Autopkg here.. but you could borrow some bits from the Autopkg recipe

Workspace can check for updates itself, but Autopkgr is the way to go.

I did some work on this and it seems to work.

# HISTORY
#
#   Version: 1.7
#   - v.1.7 Mark Lamont  15.05.2019  : made a whole bunch of tidy ups of bits I added for debug and changed logic round app running check
#   - v.1.6 Mark Lamont  15.05.2019  : made some changes to how the version check works, only uses xx.xx and made it so only two exit codes: 0 and 1 so jaf doesn't flag false fails for a success.
#   - v.1.5 Alex Waddell 22.02.2019  : Fixed (for real this time) various version parsing and normalisation issues, resolved exit code problems
#   - v.1.4 Alex Waddell 11.12.2018  : Fixed various version parsing and normalisation issues, resolved exit code 3 problem
#   - v.1.3 Peter Wreiber 09.19.2018  : Added support for Citrix Workspace
#   - v.1.2 Brian Monroe, 05.31.2016 : Fixed downloads and added regex for version matching
#   - v.1.1 Luie Lugo, 10.18.2016 : Updated for v12.3, also cleaned up download URL handling
#   - v.1.0 Luie Lugo, 09.05.2016 : Updates Citrix Receiver

I'm getting an error that Citrix is running on a fresh install macOS X where there isn't any Citrix Apps installed.

I also get an error "Citrix is running on a fresh install macOS X where there isn't any Citrix Apps installed."

the latest version will only work with Catalina. You'll need to download the older version and package it.

I'm getting an error on Big Sur: "Curl function failed on download! Error: 3.

I assume it's a mistake with a malformatted URL.

Seems ok for me but I have noticed Citrix are not being consistent with the name of the app.

I'm now using the Installomator Script https://github.com/Installomator/Installomator  for installing Citrix Workspace and it works.

The installomator version also has lots of janky grep & sed & cut... Just gonna leave this here...

Anybody know of a script that can be added that'll auto-populate the workspace site for the user?

I have an open case with Citrix regarding automatically populating the workspace URL. It's pretty ridiculous because there is not parity between the Windows & macOS versions. You actually can write the value to the following plist:

~/Library/Preferences/com.citrix.ReceiverFTU.AccountRecords.plist 

 but the problem is that plist does not exist before the app is opened for the 1st time - the plist is created by populating the URL field on the app splash screen. 

They claim to be working on it. I would suggest contacting Citrix support & making your own case. This seems like a very easy thing for them to fix.

Lastly, I did play around with creating the plist with the value I wanted & letting the opening of the app the 1st time kind of merge all the values with very mixed results. You can try it, but, I will be waiting for Citrix to fix this. 

Anything new on this from Citrix?

The problem isn't deploying, we're deploying it just fine. Just curious on trying to get the URL to autopopulate.
