On the App Volumes Entity details page, depending on the entity type, you can view the entity name, application and AppStack assigned to the entity, list of packages attached to the entity, and Writable Volumes created for the entity.

Note: AppStacks and Writable Volumes (2.x) can be created only by using App Volumes agent 2.x and uploading the appropriate templates. Any information related to these volumes can be viewed only when the VOLUMES (2.X) tab is visible in the App Volumes Manager UI. If you have installed the latest version of App Volumes Manager and want to explore App Volumes 2.x, see Perform App Volumes 2.x Management Tasks.
  • Entity types are Users, Computers, Groups, or OUs.
  • The Attachments count for the Computer entity on the Manage Computer page is a sum total of attached volumes to the computer. The volumes can be assigned to any entity (User, Computer, Group, and OU).

    However, Attachments count for the User entity on the Manage User page includes only the volumes assigned to the User.

    For example: Consider a notepad application assigned to a user and a video application assigned to a computer, system. If the user logs into system, then the Attachments count for the computer is 2 whereas for the user, the count is 1.

  • For an application package delivered as On-demand to an entity, you can observe the change in the attachment and attachment count for the entity only when the end user launches the application's shortcut. For more information about this behavior, see the characteristics section in Understanding Package Delivery Modes in App Volumes.
  • When multiple users have the same application package assignment and receive this application in a multi-session environment, package attachment on the DIRECTORY → COMPUTERS page is displayed for every user logged into the RDSH server. As a result, the attachment count is considered separately for every user.

    For more information about user-assigned applications delivered in a multi-session environment, see App Volumes Support in a Multi-Session Environment.

  • Using the Managed Entity page, you can assign an application package to an entity and unassign an application package from an entity.

    For more information about performing assign and unassign operations using this page, see Use the Active Directory Entity Page for Application Assignment.


  1. From App Volumes Manager, go to DIRECTORY > Entity.
  2. On the Managed Entity page, view the list of entities displayed.
  3. To view the entity details, click an entity name.

    For non-computer entities (Users, Groups, and OUs), the Application Assignments section also includes the computer prefix information.

    The computer prefix information is displayed when the Limit delivery for these assignments option is selected when assigning an application to an entity. For more information about the limit delivery option, see Application Assignment to Specific Computers.

    Similarly, you can also unassign the attachment from the entity for a specific computer. The prefix of the computer name is displayed in the Computers column in the Application Assignments table. For more information about the Computers column, see View Assignments.
