You configure entitlements to control which remote desktops and applications your users can access. You can configure the restricted entitlements feature to control desktop access based on the View Connection Server instance that users connect to when they select remote desktops. You can also restrict access to a set of users outside the network from connecting to remote desktops and applications within the network.

In a Cloud Pod Architecture environment, you create global entitlements to entitle users or groups to multiple desktops across multiple pods in a pod federation. When you use global entitlements, you do not need to configure and manage local entitlements for remote desktops. For information about global entitlements and setting up a Cloud Pod Architecture environment, see the Administering View Cloud Pod Architecture document.
