with citrix policies you are able to allow / deny mapping of local connected client printers.
you can force a connection to a special networkprinter for a single session too.
this option is names "session-printer".
citrix policies are also used to configure printer driver settings and the citrix universal printer.
what do you want to achieve?

I believe you are asking about the Citrix Universal Printer object?

If so, I have documented this process and best practices here (my publication):
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/25499/Citrix-XenDesktop-7-6-Citrix-Policies-Advanced-Printing.html

This will walk you through the entire process and ensure best practices.  The process is the same for most versions so disregard the 7.6 version being it is the same pretty much for all versions post 7.6, as of this writing/comment.
