The Applications page shows all of the RDSH-backed applications available for assignments.

Click the Inventory icon and select Applications to access the Applications page.

The system categorizes the applications in your Horizon Cloud inventory as remote or custom depending on how the application is added into the inventory.

  • Remote applications are those imported from the RDSH farms of type Remote Applications (as shown on the Farms page). From the Applications page, use the New button and the Auto-Scan from Farm choice to import these applications. When they are imported into the inventory, you can assign these remote applications to your users. See Importing New Applications from an RDSH Farm Using Auto-Scan from Farm.
  • Custom applications are applications in the RDSH images that you manually add into the inventory by using the New button on the Applications page and the Manually from Farm choice. Even though the best practice is to use the automated way, the manual method can be useful for some unique situations, such as for adding applications that are invoked from the command prompt or which cannot be auto-detected in a Windows operating system.
You can take the following actions on the Applications page.
