    Description

    Default Domain

    Default domain that you are editing.

    Session Timeout

    Assign or change the timeout setting for each portal.

    Image Defaults Configuration

    If you require a desktop image to be registered against an OU in Active Directory other than CN=Computers, enter the value in the Image OU text box.

    User Portal Configuration

    Enter the help desk email address, the trouble ticket system URL, and the external style sheet URL for the end-user portal configuration.

    User Account Configuration

    When you have the IDM settings configured for at least one VMware Identity Manager environment, these two options are available to enforce use of the Workspace ONE portal for desktop access:

    • Set Force Remote Users to vIDM to Yes to require users outside your corporate network to use the Workspace ONE portal to access their desktops.

    • Set Force Internal Users to vIDM to Yes to require users inside your corporate network to use the Workspace ONE portal to access their desktops.

    IDM

    Click Add IDM as part of integrating this Horizon Cloud Node with a VMware Identity Manager environment. This information configures the VMware Identity Manager

    Complete the displayed form for the following information:

    • URL of your VMware Identity Manager environment.

    • Optionally provide the timeout, in minutes, for the SSO tokens. These SSO tokens are used to enforce this timeout for your end users.

    • Select the data center for which you are configuring the use of the VMware Identity Manager environment.

    • Type the Horizon Cloud Node IP address that is used for desktop access.

    HTML Access

    The Cleanup credentials when tab is closed setting affects system security and ease of use when end users access desktops or applications using HTML Access. The setting determines if end users must re-enter their credentials when they reconnect.

    • A value of Yes, the option that emphasizes security, prompts end users to re-enter their credentials.

    • A value of No, the option that emphasizes ease of use, does not prompt end users to re-enter their credentials.

    Agent Pairing

    Sets a policy on your environment which determines the access of desktops that are using legacy (pre-16.6.0) and 16.6.0 agents.

    • The 15.3 Compatibility Mode option allows pairing of the legacy and 16.6.0 agents with your environment. This option also applies to the 16.3 agents. This option is the default setting for updated environments.

    • Even though the 16.6 Upgrade Mode option restricts fresh pairings by legacy agents, this mode allows a desktop that is already paired using the 16.3.0 agent unless the desktop or the agent service is restarted.

    • The 16.6 Mode option allows only bootstrapped 16.6.0 agents to pair with the environment. This mode does not restrict a desktop that is already paired using 16.3.x agents or using unbootstrapped 16.6.0 agents unless the desktop or DaaS agent service is restarted. This option is the default setting for fresh installs.
