A Horizon administrator can disable 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 affect on Horizon Client. For information about disabling data sharing in Horizon Client, see the installation and setup guide for the Horizon Client platform.
