Citrix URL Monitoring automation Tool request
I would like to automate my Citrix NetScaler URL monitoring through any bot or simulation tool.
The tool should launch the Citrix NetScaler URL --> Login with AD User ID  -->Launch the VDI -->Give result email.
Basically,below two automated monitoring tools required.
1. Web URL (Citrix NS URL) launch Test
2. Synthetic test for VDI launch.
Please share any such tools.

The solution you are looking for is for an Enterprise/SMB?
I am sure there might be better monitoring applications available for the Citrix environment.

The tests you have mentioned might be possible using API.
I would suggest looking into Python and Citrix API to develop something with your exact requirement. Citrix Developer Docs 
I am struggling to think of anything off-hand that does this. I *think* eGinnovations might have this kind of feature but it's more for load testing.

You could try the scripts here: https://www.czerno.com/blog/post/2016/08/26/powershell-script-to-launch-one-or-more-published-applications-from-citrix-storefront-2-x-through-3-6 but they are somewhat out of date now. However it may be possible they'll still work or may need some retweeking. I haven't dissected them so I couldn't say either way, I am afraid.

Edit: Well I was a bit daft there - if I'd looked a bit harder at his site, he's actually got a much more up-to-date version of the script: https://www.czerno.com/blog/post/2020/09/26/powershell-script-to-launch-one-or-more-published-applications-from-citrix-storefront-1912
