I am Tryin  to follow article
Hyperlinks to Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3  just pointing to the knowledge base
Trying work  on Part 2: Configure Session Policy and corresponding Session Profile for Citrix Receiver use.

where do I careate new sesion profile?

and where do I create new policy?
if possible step by step.

Create a Session Profile and Session Policy on the Access Gateway to allow incoming XenApp connections from the Citrix Receiver
1.      Create a new Session Profile. The Session Profile’s Published Applications Tab should be configured to point to the XenApp Services Site created in Part 1.
An example of the CLI command to create the session profile:
add vpn sessionAction CitrixReceiver_Profile -SSO ON -icaProxy ON -wihome http://<servername>/citrix/pnagent/config.xml
2.      Create a new session policy to identify that the connection is from Citrix Receiver. When you create the session policy, configure the following qualifying expression(s):
REQ.HTTP.HEADER User-Agent CONTAINS CitrixReceiver
Note: The above expression allows all variants of Citrix Receiver to leverage the policy.
Example CLI command:
add vpn sessionPolicy CitrixReceiver_Policy "REQ.HTTP.HEADER User-Agent CONTAINS CitrixReceiver" CitrixReceiver_Profile
If you would like to create specific expressions for iPhone/iPad, you could use the qualifiers below in the expression

It is in the Netscaler/AGEE management console. You access this by browing the IP of your appliance using your favorite web browser. The default username/password is nsroot/nsroot

Once in to the management interface you will see a list of folders down the left hand side. Expand the Access Gateway one, you'll then see sessions, and then policies.

It doesn't sound like you are using Citrix access gateway, which is what the article you sadi you are following is for.

Are you using Citrix Secure Gateway?

Ok, so you are using secure gateway. Is it configured and working for regular web access using a purchased public certificate?

Ok. I couldn't find anything newer.. Most of it is the same but the following..
1. Create a XenApp Services site in the Citrix Web interface Management Console and configure it to point to your XenApp 4.5 or later Farm.

2. Highlight the site in the Citrix Web interface Management Console and select Secure Access under the actions pane

3-6 are the same

7. In the In the Access Management Console, select the XenApp Services site . Select Server settings under action, and then check Use SSL/TLS for communication between plugins and this site. Click OK.
