VMware Horizon Cloud Service with Hosted or On-Premises Infrastructure can be integrated with the VMware Identity Manager service.

Integrating Horizon Cloud with the VMware Identity Manager service lets you provide users the ability to access their entitled Horizon Cloud applications and desktops from the Workspace ONE portal or app. This provides users a single place for accessing all their applications across devices.

Desktop and application pools, also known as assignments, are configured in the Horizon Cloud tenant. You also set user and group entitlements in the Horizon Cloud tenant, not in the VMware Identity Manager service. You must sync these users and groups to the VMware Identity Manager service from Active Directory before integrating with the Horizon Cloud tenant.

To integrate Horizon Cloud with VMware Identity Manager, you create one or more virtual apps collections in the VMware Identity Manager administration console. The collections contain the configuration information for the Horizon Cloud tenants as well as sync settings.

You can set up a sync schedule for each collection to regularly sync resources and entitlements from the Horizon Cloud tenants to the VMware Identity Manager service.

After you integrate the Horizon Cloud tenant with VMware Identity Manager, you can see the Horizon Cloud desktops and applications in the VMware Identity Manager administration console. You can also view user and group entitlements.

End users can launch their entitled desktops and apps from the Workspace ONE portal or app. These desktops and apps can be accessed over HTML in a browser or over a supported display protocol in the VMware Horizon® Client™. Horizon Client versions 3.4 and later are supported.
