Symptoms or Error

A USB Joystick has been tested successfully from a windows client. USB device pass through is configured on a Citrix policy via Studio, but USB device options on mac receiver client show 'Policy Restricted' in the 'Virtual Channel' column. Customer tried updating the local policy by editing the /library/Application Support/Citrix Receiver/USB.conf file and setting the Citrix USB device redirection rule policy to 'Use default' which did not help. reference: https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX137939, https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/receiver/mac/current-release/configure.html.

Solution

Move the enable line to the top of the config file and the device works as expected.
/library/Application Support/Citrix Receiver/USB.conf
