This workflow allows end users to de-provision their own virtual machine from the specified pod and desktop pool. This workflow removes user entitlement and assignment. Depending on the pool policy, the virtual machine might be deleted and any persistent disks might be saved.

Inputs/parameters

None

Limitations

  • Saving a persistent disk (sometimes called a UDD, or user data disk), works only for automated dedicated linked-clone desktop pools.

  • Deleting the virtual machine is not supported for floating pools or manual pools.

Prerequisites/binding requirements

The administrator must run the Manage Self Service Pool Configuration workflow to specify which pools are available for selection by end users.

This workflow does not appear in the vSphereWebClient folder.

Results

For floating-assignment pools, user entitlement is removed. For other desktop pool types, user assignment is removed.

For dedicated-assignment linked-clone pools, the virtual machine is deleted and persistent disks are saved according to the settings used in the Add Pool Policy Configuration workflow.
