Horizon 7 provides proxy support for the VMware Identity Manager (vIDM) server. The proxy details such as hostname and port number can be configured in the ADAM database and the HTTP requests are routed through the proxy.

About this task

This feature supports hybrid deployment where the on-premise Horizon 7 deployment can communicate with a vIDM server that is hosted in the cloud.



  1. Start the ADSI Edit utility on your Connection Server host.
  2. Expand the ADAM ADSI tree under the object path: cd=vdi,dc=vmware,dc=int,ou=Properties,ou=Global,cn=Common Attributes.
  3. Select Action > Properties, and under the pae-NameValuePair attribute, add the new entries pae-SAMLProxyName and pae-SAMLProxyPort.
