This de-provisioning workflow removes user assignment or entitlement from the specified virtual machine desktop. Depending on the pool policy, the virtual machine might be deleted and any persistent disks might be saved.

Inputs/parameters

Pod, pool ID, user name

Scope

Works for all types of pools.

Prerequisites

Run the Add Pool Policy Configuration workflow before running this workflow.

Results

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

For dedicated 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.

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.
