We have citrix servers where we publish  an application that we grant access to users and they can launch and run it

If we instead of granting access to users individually , grant access to groups or nested groups a user is member of , the users do not get access immediately.

I am not even sure when a user who is member of the group or nested group will get access to application (i never wait to find that out)

So whenever user will say they are member of group but cant access the application , i add them individually in the application as user and they can work.

How long does it take an application that is published through citrix for a user ,to calucate the group membership.

What does it depend on.can i force it to calculate quickly so that i dont have to add users individually.

It does not depend on time - Citrix uses the Windows mechanics.

If the user is a member of a group, then access is immediate.  However, Windows only calculates group membership at login time when it builds the security token.  So, if you are adding a user to a group to grant them access, they must logout of Citrix and log back in to get the new group membership.  

If this is *not* the case, then you have something wrong with your domain that needs to be investigated.

What i have seen is when we Publish an application to a group in Citrix XenApp 6.5
The Users do not see the published application immediately

Users even log out and log back in to citrix , but still .

Instead if i add user individually to published application, the published app show immediately , we just have to refresh the web interface page/

What kind of groups are you using? Global or Universal?

Yes it makes a difference.  Universal groups are deeply affected by replication.. so, if you are adding users that way, it may not show up right away.  The fact that you are using Global groups means you won't be affected by that.  :-\

I'm not sure what would be going on.. unless you are crossing domains/forests?  Without that, I'd be calling Citrix at this point.
