You can configure Workspace ONE UEM to deliver Horizon Client to Android device users.

You can optionally configure a list of Connection Server instances, a default Connection Server instance, or application properties. If you configure a list of servers, the servers appear as shortcuts in Horizon Client. If you specify a default server, Horizon Client connects to that server automatically.

If your environment is set up for Android for Work, do not follow this procedure. Instead, see Configure Workspace ONE UEM to Deliver Horizon Client to Android for Work Devices.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Workspace ONE UEM console as an administrator.
  2. Select Accounts > Users > List View, click Add, select Add User, and add user accounts for the users who will run Horizon Client on their Android devices.
  3. Select Accounts > Users > User Groups > List View, click Add, select Add User Group, and create a user group for the user accounts that you created.
  4. Create an application profile for Horizon Client.
    1. Select Apps & Books > Applications > Application Settings > Profiles and click Add Profile.
    2. Select the SDK Profile configuration type.
    3. Select the Android profile type.
    4. (Optional) Click Custom Settings to configure a list of servers, a default server, or application settings.
      To configure a list of servers, specify properties in the server-list section. Use the server property to specify the IP address or host name of the server, the username and domain properties to specify the name and domain of a user that is entitled to use the server, and the description property to specify a description of the server. The username, domain, and description properties are optional. To configure a default server, specify the default property in the server-list section. Valid values are true or false. To configure application settings, specify application properties in the setting-list section.
      For example:
      {
        "settings": {
          "server-list": 
          [
            {"server":"123.456.1.1","username":"User1","domain":"TestDomain1","description":"View server 1","default":true},
            {"server":"123.456.1.2","username":"User2","domain":"TestDomain2","description":"View server 2"},
            {"server":"123.456.1.3","username":"User3","domain":"TestDomain3","description":"View server 3"},
            {"server":"viewserver4.mydomain.com","username":"User4","domain":"TestDomain4","description":"View server 4"}
          ] ,
          "setting-list":   
            {"screen_resolution":"1024*768",
             "send_log_email":"testuser@mail.com",
             "enable_h264":"true",
             "all_monitor":"true",
             "default_startscreen":"recent",
             "ssl_cipher_string":"!aNULL:kECDH+AESGCM:ECDH+AESGCM:RSA+AESGCM:kECDH+AES:ECDH+AES:RSA+AES",
             "ssl_tls":"tlsv1.1,tlsv1.2",
             "security_mode":"verify",
             "camera":"front",
             "enable_dpi_sync":"true",   
             "enable_log":"false"
           }
        }
      }
  5. Upload and add the Horizon Client application.
    1. Select Apps & Books > Applications > List View and click Add Application on the Internal tab.
    2. Browse to the Horizon Client app that you downloaded and click Save to upload the application.
    3. On the Info tab, type an application name and specify the supported mobile device models.
    4. On the Assignment tab, assign the Horizon Client application to the user group that you created.
    5. On the Deployment tab, set Application uses Workspace ONE SDK to Yes and select the SDK profile that you created from the SDK Profile drop-down menu.
    6. Publish the Horizon Client application.
  6. Install and set up the Workspace ONE UEM Agent on each device.
    You can download the Workspace ONE UEM Agent from Google Play or the Amazon Appstore for Android.
  7. Use the Workspace ONE UEM console to install the Horizon Client application on the devices.
    You cannot install the Horizon Client application before the effective date on the Deployment tab.

Results

Workspace ONE UEM delivers Horizon Client to the devices in the user group that you associated with the Horizon Client application.

When a user starts Horizon Client, Horizon Client communicates with the Workspace ONE UEM Agent on the device. If you configured a list of Connection Server instances, Workspace ONE UEM pushes the server information to the Workspace ONE UEM Agent on the device and shortcuts for those servers appear in Horizon Client.

What to do next

You can use the Workspace ONE UEM console to edit the Horizon Client application and push those changes to devices.
