You can configure a list of Connection Server instances and a default Connection Server instance for Horizon Client for Android on enrolled Chromebooks.

When you configure a list of servers, the servers appear as shortcuts in Horizon Client. If you configure a default server, Horizon Client automatically connects to that server.

To configure a list of servers or a default server, you must create a JSON configuration file. A Chrome administrator must use the Google Admin console to upload the JSON configuration file for the Horizon Client for Android app. For detailed information about using the Google Admin console, see the G Suite Administrator Help.

For example, the following JSON configuration file specifies a list of servers. The server property specifies the IP address or host name of the server, the username and domain properties specify the name and domain of a user that is entitled to use the server, and the description property specifies a description of the server. The username, domain, and description properties are optional.

{
  "broker_list": "
      {
          \"settings\": {
              \"server-list\": [{
                  \"server\": \"123.456.1.1\",
                  \"description\": \"View Server 1\",
                  \"username\": \"User1\",
                  \"domain\": \"TestDomain1\"
              }, {
                  \"server\": \"123.456.1.2\",
                  \"description\": \"View Server 2\",
                  \"username\": \"User2\",
                  \"domain\": \"TestDomain2\"
              }, {
                  \"server\": \"123.456.1.3\",
                  \"description\": \"View Server 3\",
                  \"username\": \"User3\",
                  \"domain\": \"TestDomain3\"
              }, {
                  \"server\": \"viewserver4.mydomain.com\",
                  \"description\": \"View Server 4\",
                  \"username\": \"User4\",
                  \"domain\": \"TestDomain4\"
              }]}
       }"
}

The following example shows how to use the default property to specify a default server. Valid values are true and false.

{
  "broker_list": "
      {
          \"settings\": {
              \"server-list\": [{
                  \"server\": \"123.456.1.1\",
                  \"description\": \"View Server 1\",
                  \"default\": true,
                  \"username\": \"User1\",
                  \"domain\": \"TestDomain1\"
              }]}
       }"
}

You can install Horizon Client for Android only on certain Chromebook models. For information, see System Requirements for Chromebooks.
