You create desktop assignments in the Administration Console to provision virtual desktops to your end users.
Your Horizon Cloud environment must have at least one image VM in the Published state that the system will use as the operating system on the virtual desktops. In desktop assignments, the published image is used as the Microsoft Windows operating system in the desktops that get assigned to your end users by the desktop assignment.
A Horizon Cloud pod in a Microsoft Azure environment provides for these types of desktop assignments:
- VDI desktop assignments. For steps on creating VDI desktop assignments, see Create a Floating VDI Desktop Assignment and Create a Dedicated VDI Desktop Assignment.
- RDSH session desktop assignments. Before creating an RDSH session desktop assignment, you must have at least one desktops farm that was created based on the published image. See Create a Farm.
