Citrix Visio Stencils (August 2017)


Note: These stencils are outdated. Use the latest Citrix Workspace Visio Stencils.

I know I’ve blogged about updates to the Citrix Visio stencils in the past. It seems like every 3 months I post an update to the Visio stencils to include a few new icons for new components/functionality.

The August 2017 Visio stencil update is major. It is aligned with the Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR release.

Previously, most of the icons you saw, I created. I have little artistic talent, but I know how to draw circles, squares and rectangles.

We have a team within Citrix that creates our images and icons. I spent the last few months working with them on helping us create a new, standard set of icons. I must say, the output is wonderful.

Not only are there 144 icons, including this really cute penguin for Linux, I also included 6 different diagrams showing different levels of detail that you can use as a starting point. So, make sure you grab the latest Visio Stencils

Citrix Visio Stencils (June 2017)


Note: These stencils are outdated. Use the latest Citrix Workspace Visio Stencils.

Now that Citrix Synergy is over, I’ve got some new Visio stencils for Citrix architects.

First, I’ve got role-based stencils for NetScaler (based on a request from a Citrix architect and Visio user).

Second, I created a stencil for Citrix Cloud XenMobile Service to align with the Citrix Cloud XenApp and XenDesktop service.

I’m noticing these XenApp and XenDesktop stencils have started to grow beyond XenApp and XenDesktop.  I think it is time to rename these stencils to Citrix Visio Stencils.

And like before, I created a set of Visio stencils in the Visio 2010 format.

Visio Stencils for XenApp and XenDesktop 7.12


Note: These stencils are outdated. Use the latest Citrix Workspace Visio Stencils.

A short blog, but a good one.

New Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop Visio stencils, just in time for the 7.12 release.

visio712Items to note:

  1. Workspace Environment Manager: New component means new Visio stencil
  2. Federated Authentication Service: This feature was released in 7.11, but I didn’t have an image for it. Omission corrected
  3. Active Directory: Image is a replacement for an older image
  4. Machine Catalog: I needed an image for a diagram and realized it didn’t exist!

And because some of you continue to ask nicely, I created a set of Visio stencils in the Visio 2003-2010 format.

Visio Stencils for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.8 and 7.9


Note: These stencils are outdated. Use the latest Citrix Workspace Visio Stencils.

My wife always tells me that admitting to my mistakes will make me feel better (I think she is wrong, but I’ll give it a try). So here it goes…

The year was 2004 and I was drawing a Citrix Presentation Server diagram. Unfortunately, Citrix didn’t have a set of Visio stencils so I created my own. Over the past 11 years, I (reluctantly at first) updated these to include new components and drastically changed the style.

Throughout many of those same years, I’ve been talking about Provisioning Services, demonstrating Provisioning Services, diagramming Provisioning Services and using Provisioning Services (but not dreaming about Provisioning Services, I’m not that crazy). So how could I have skipped creating a Visio stencil for Provisioning Services?

I made a mistake. There, I said it. Do I feel better? NO. Not in the slightest.

But you know what makes me feel better? Doing something about it.

And I did just that. I created a Visio stencil for Provisioning Services!!!

But that’s not all. With the XenApp and XenDesktop 7.8 release, I also created new Visio stencils for

  • XenApp Secure Browser
  • AppDisk
  • AppDNA (I really think it looks like a double helix)

7.8 stencils

And because some of you asked nicely, I also created a set of Visio stencils in the Visio 2003-2010 format (Note: No updates for the 7.9 release).

Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.7 Visio Stencils


Welcome 2016!

Note: These stencils are outdated. Use the latest Citrix Workspace Visio Stencils.

Over my end of year holiday, I met up with a friend from my old hometown and he was telling me some of the funny things his kids say and do. One was a conversation between the kid and his teacher…

The teacher asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

The kid said “I want to be a dentist. They make lots of money and only work 4 days a week.”

The teacher responds “But money can’t buy happiness.”

The kid says “Not true. Money can buy a WaveRunner. Have you ever seen a sad person on a WaveRunner?”

(I guess he watches Daniel Tosh).

I want to start the year by bringing a little bit of happiness to your life.

I know this isn’t as good as a WaveRunner, but it is still pretty good… updated Microsoft Visio stencils for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.7.

It has been about a year and a half since I last updated these, and since that time, I’ve added a few new stencils:
