Rewrite or delete Server header using Citrix ADC CPX

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post about Using Citrix ingress controller with Azure Kubernetes Service. In this post, I’m going to show how easy it is to use the Custom Resource Definitions from Citrix to replace the Server header in an HTTP response, as well as removing it completely. If you would…



Using Citrix ingress controller with Azure Kubernetes Service

I’ve had an Ansible playbook to deploy and configure Azure Kubernetes Service on GitHub for a while, and now I’ve gotten around to add Citrix ingress controller! You can read my other blogpost about the playbook here. Citrix has a Kubernetes controller to read ingress objects and their own CRDs (rewrite for example, which isn’t…



OpenID Connect token validation in Citrix ADC

I’ve previously written about how to use OpenID Connect in NetScaler and a way to use callouts to validate tokens. You can also use the function JWT_VERIFY_CERTKEY() but that requires that you (for now) keep the issuing certificate updated locally. Another way is to setup an OpenID Connect client (OAuth Action) on Citrix ADC and…



Citrix ADC and ADM automation using Ansible

I’ve been working with Ansible more and more and been learning a lot. It’s so much fun but I also think it can help others out there with their projects. I’ve published a few blog posts regarding a few different parts of how I automate Citrix ADC (NetScaler) and Citrix ADM (NetScaler MAS), and will…



Configure Stylebook configpacks using Ansible and Citrix ADM

I’ve created an Ansible playbook to deploy configpacks to Citrix ADC (previously Citrix NetScaler) using Ansible and Citrix ADM (previously Citrix NetScaler MAS). You add the configuration to the parameters and the playbook will add configpacks using the settings you’ve defined. Still a lot to do with this one, for example updating the configpack when…



Citrix ADC base configuration with Ansible and Citrix ADM

I’ve created an Ansible playbook to configure a base line on Citrix ADC (previously Citrix NetScaler) using Ansible and Citrix ADM (previously Citrix NetScaler MAS). The only thing you will have to do is change the parameters in the playbook and run it. The playbook has been published to Azure DevOps and can be found…



Configure Citrix ADC HA pair using Ansible and Citrix ADM

I’ve create an Ansible playbook to configure two Citrix ADCs (previously Citrix NetScaler) into an HA pair using Citrix ADM (previously NetScaler MAS). The only thing you will have to do is change the parameters in the playbook and run it with the credentials and IP-addresses as parameters and you’ll have an HA pair. The…



Deploy Citrix ADC to Azure using ARM Templates and Ansible

I’ve created an Ansible playbook to deploy Citrix ADC (previously Citrix NetScaler) to Azure using ARM Templates. You can find the playbook here in Azure DevOps, see the readme for the latest information about the playbook, how to use it and the per-requisites. The main points for creating a new one instead of using the…
