Robust automated testing of Citrix applications

Most automation tools fall short when test cases become increasingly complex and involves technologies like Citrix applications and mainframes.

With the LEAPWORK Automation Platform, you can ensure that system upgrades, configuration changes, and new application releases don’t break the user experience. LEAPWORK’s visual designer makes it incredibly easy to create test cases that interact with any Citrix desktop or application. 

Automate anything inside the Citrix Receiver

Drive mouse and keyboard actions on virtual desktops without typing a single line of code. The LEAPWORK Automation Platform handles the specific challenge of virtual automation with its powerful image and text recognition technology.

Automation flows built with LEAPWORK can even go across the boundary of the Citrix Receiver to include native automation of web and desktop applications. The image and text recognition capabilities can also be used for graphics, games, and native mobile applications.


Monitor performance of Citrix Xenapps and Xendesktops 

Always know the answer to the question: “Why is my Citrix desktop slow?” By setting up automated monitoring with LEAPWORK, you can emulate user behavior to pinpoint where any performance issues originate from. Combine around-the-clock monitoring with automated alerts to detect problems before the end-user does.

Works with all other virtualization software

Automate all virtual desktop technologies and remote desktop platforms like Citrix, Windows Remote Desktop, Azure, VMWare, RealVNC, Netop and many more.


Build Citrix automation visually 

Design your flows with LEAPWORK's image and text recognition blocks which include all the logic and details needed for accurate and reliable automated testing of Citrix and other virtual applications.


"LEAPWORK was the only tool we tried that solved the Citrix automation without errors."

A revolutionary tool for automated testing of Citrix and virtual desktops


The shortest learning curve on the market

Build and execute test automation cases of Citrix Xenapps and Xendesktops from day one with the flowchart-based designer.

Never type a single line of code

Users at all business levels can design test automation flows without ever typing or reading a single line of code – and then execute cases with the click of a button.

Collaborate on one platform

Work on test cases in teams, share project assets, and set up feedback loops across departments. The LEAPWORK Automation Platform is a tool for specialists, generalists, and management alike.

Fully featured, out of the box tool


Automate across applications

Implement automation flows that move seamlessly across systems and environments, e.g. verification processes that involve both a website and a desktop application. Even data can be easily transferred between applications within the same flow.


Build reusable components

Any parts of automation flows can be combined into custom blocks to be re-used between cases, shared across teams, and parameterized as needed. Build sequences only once and keep maintenance workload to an absolute minimum.


Drive automation with external data

Run cases with automated input from spreadsheets, databases, scripts, and more. Call external sources through APIs and HTTP requests and use the results live in cases. The transfer of data and values are simply represented as arrows in automation flows.


Schedule cases for repeated execution

Scheduling of automation cases is completely customizable in terms of frequency, time of day, and more. Cases can be executed on an ad hoc basis or be scheduled to run as often as needed around the clock.


Streamline maintenance using logs

When executed, every single step and activity in an automation case are documented in three ways: A video recording, a debugging view, and a log with timestamps. This makes it very easy to go through cases step by step for troubleshooting and finding out why cases fail.


Report on project status

Make the right decisions with powerful live dashboards and reports. Reports are exportable and fully customizable by using filtering and grouping options. Visualize case performance data using dashboards of charts and widgets.


Run cases on-premises and in the cloud 

Cases can run on both local, remote, and virtual machines, in closed networks, and in the cloud. Web automation cases can run on a Selenium Grid as well as cloud services such as Sauce Labs and BrowserStack. Read about deployment options.


Support continuous delivery

Plug LEAPWORK into your CD pipeline and integrate with build and release systems using our public REST API. LEAPWORK comes with native plugins for Jenkins, TFS, TeamCity, and Bamboo and can also be integrated with bug management systems. Set up triggers for scripts, web services, and more.


Customize automation strategies

Improve the reliability of automation cases by setting up fail-safe methods for how LEAPWORK interacts with application elements. By using the Strategy Editor, you can define an approach for retrieving any element specified in automation cases.

Capabilities for all technologies

At its core, the LEAPWORK Automation Platform relies on four major automation technologies, each solving specific types of automation challenges. The capabilities can be used both separately and combined as needed

SAP automation

From verifying cross-application processes to generating master data, LEAPWORK comes with built-in capabilities ideal for SAP automation.

Image recognition

The image and text recognition technology of the LEAPWORK Automation Platform is a powerful approach to automating Citrix, games, native mobile apps, and more.

Platform technologies centered

Web automation

Automate any website and web application with LEAPWORK’s web automation capabilities powered by the world-leading browser automation framework, Selenium.
