Next in the series of Cloud Migration…. When migrating the control plane to Citrix Cloud, I found that if you had changed the PublishedName to something other than the default Delivery Group name, they up and vanished and reverted to the Delivery Group name. I didn’t have that many to have to change, but if you had a LOT of them set, it would have not been fun. But…. Powershell again to the rescue!

If you do use custom set PublishedName, then you will need to get a list exported from your old DDC to import. This builds on the other post of setting up your new Powershell SDK.

The script below has parts to run on the old DDC and on a machine with the new SDK installed.

# Script to get custom PublishedName and change from on-prem to Citrix Cloud after ACT import.

# To be ran on old on-prem DDC to get custom PublishedNames.
Get-BrokerDesktopGroup | Select-Object Name, PublishedName | Export-csv C:\scripts\logs\pubslishedname.csv -append -NoTypeInformation

# To be ran on machine with Citrix Cloud SDK installed.
asnp Citrix*

Get-XDCredentials -ProfileName "default"

$pubName = import-csv "C:\scripts\logs\published.csv"

foreach($pub in $pubName){
  Get-BrokerDesktopGroup -Name $pub.Name | Set-BrokerDesktopGroup -PublishedName $pub.PublishedName

 Get-BrokerDesktopGroup -MaxRecordCount 10000 | Select-Object Name, PublishedName

This is the output you see where the Name and PublishedName are matching the Delivery Group name.

After exporting your CSV from the old DDC and copying the file to your machine with the new SDK installed, you can edit the csv (example here in Notepad++) and make and changes you need to make to it.

After running the second part of the script, you see the changes reflected on the PublishedName field.
