We have a unique use case where the client wants to publish the Citrix App to an Entra ID/Azure B2C tenant so that some of the partner users can access apps that are behind Citrix .
I never heard that we could publish something like this to B2C tenant. I have only see PowerApps portals, websites, and custom applications for consumers. Not sure if anyone has any comment or feedback on this approach?

    Hi @RajKumar , Thanks for reaching out.

    Based on the information you provided, it seems like you are trying to publish Citrix apps to an Azure B2C tenant for partner users to access. While Azure B2C is primarily designed for consumer-facing applications, it is possible to use it for partner-facing applications as well. However, it is important to note that Azure B2C is not designed to be a full-fledged identity and access management solution for partners.

    One approach you could consider is using Azure AD B2B collaboration to invite partner users to access the Citrix apps. This would allow you to securely share your apps and resources with external users while maintaining control over access and permissions.

    Another approach you could consider is using Azure AD App Proxy to publish the Citrix apps to the internet and provide secure access to partner users. This would allow you to securely publish your apps without requiring VPN or other complex networking configurations.

    Hope this will help.

    Thanks,

    Shweta
