A Horizon administrator can turn off data sharing for all HTML Access users, and prevent users from changing the Allow data sharing option in HTML Access, by adding the following setting to the C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\broker\webapps\portal\WEB-INF\classes\portal-version.properties file on the Connection Server instance.


When this setting is set to true, Settings (gear icon) does not appear on the VMware Horizon web portal page.

Note: This setting has no effect on Horizon Client. For information about turning off data sharing in Horizon Client, see the guide document for the Horizon Client platform.
