When you create a global entitlement, you must specify its scope policy. The scope policy determines the scope of the search when the Cloud Pod Architecture feature looks for desktops to satisfy a desktop request from the global entitlement.

You can set the scope policy so that the Cloud Pod Architecture feature searches for desktops only on the pod to which the user is connected, only on pods within the same site as the user's pod, or across all pods in the pod federation.

For global entitlements that contain dedicated desktop pools, the scope policy affects where the Cloud Pod Architecture feature looks for desktops only the first time a user requests a dedicated desktop. After the Cloud Pod Architecture feature allocates a dedicated desktop, it returns the user directly to the same desktop.

For information about configuring the scope policy for a global entitlement, see Create and Configure a Global Entitlement.
