You can enable App Volumes functionality for an organization on the Maintenance page.


Once App Volumes has been enabled for a tenant, it cannot be disabled.


Before enabling App Volumes for a tenant, you must do the following:

  • Specify the Appstack RegEx and Writable RegEx datastores on the Datastores tab for the desktop manager (service grid > resources > Desktop Managers).

  • Enter credentials for the ESX host on the Accounts tab for the compute resource (service Grid > resources > Compute Resources). This is applicable only for tenants running version 17.1.0 or higher.


  1. Select an Organization ID from the list.
  2. Click Enable AppVolumes.


The organization appears on the right of the page along with its status and date updated.
