Before you can entitle a particular resource to your users, you must populate your catalog with that resource. The method you use to populate your catalog with a resource depends on what type of resource it is.

The types of resources that you can define in your catalog for entitlement and distribution to users are Web applications, Windows applications captured as VMware ThinApp packages, Horizon Client desktop pools and Horizon virtual applications, or Citrix-based applications.

To integrate and enable Horizon Client desktop and application pools, Citrix-published resources, or ThinApp packaged applications, you use the Manage Desktop Applications menu in the Catalog tab.

For information, requirements, installation and configuration of these resources, see Setting Up Resources in VMware Identity Manager.
