Use this workflow when your scenario is integrating the Workspace ONE Access Connector appliance with the pod in a Horizon Cloud environment using single-pod brokering. When your Horizon Cloud environment is configured for single-pod brokering and you want to integrate a pod in Microsoft Azure with Workspace ONE Access, you configure the Workspace ONE Access Connector appliance to point to the pod itself so that the appliance can synch the user entitlements from the pod. The primary use of this workflow is for that type of integration, so that the Workspace ONE Access connector will trust SSL connections to the pod manager VMs. Even though there might be some rare, atypical scenarios in which some types of organizations would look to put an SSL certificate directly onto the pod manager VMs, those situations are uncommon and most organizations would not fall into those situations.
When your environment is configured for what is called single-pod or per-pod brokering, the Workspace ONE Access Connector talks to the pod manager VMs through the Microsoft Azure load balancer that is in front of those appliances. To have that communication, the Workspace ONE Access connector must be able to trust SSL connections to the pod manager VMs. Putting your SSL certificate on those pod manager VMs enables that trusted communication.
To learn about scenarios where the pod manager VMs get configured with SSL certificates, read about pod manager VMs and the special scenarios where they need SSL certificates. The primary use case is when your environment is configured for single-pod brokering, and you are integrating your pod with the Workspace ONE Access Connector so that end users can access their pod-provisioned resources using Workspace ONE Access. To read about that integration workflow at A Horizon Cloud Environment with Single-Pod Brokering — Integrating the Environment's Horizon Cloud Pods in Microsoft Azure with Workspace ONE Access.
The steps below are performed in the Horizon Universal Console.
Before you start this workflow, verify that you have the required items described in Prerequisites for Running the Horizon Universal Console's Upload Pod Certificate Workflow to Configure SSL Certificates on the Horizon Cloud Pod's Manager VMs. Especially ensure that you have three certificate files that the console's workflow requires and that they meet the criteria described on that linked page.
- Select .
- Open the pod's summary page by clicking the pod's name.
. The Upload Pod Certificate window opens. The following screenshot is an example of the window.
- For each of the certificate files listed in the Upload Pod Certificate window, click Select and navigate to where you have the file available to upload.
- When the window shows that all of the certificate files are listed, click Save.
The following screenshot is an illustration of the window with all certificate files listed before saving them to the system.
