You can use Smart Policies for user environment settings in a published desktop or application and also for computer environment settings that apply during computer boot or session reconnection.

You can create policies for user environment settings that control a range of behaviors. Horizon Smart Policies for user environment settings are applied during login and can be refreshed during reconnect of a session. To reapply Horizon Smart Policies when a user reconnects to a session, you can configure a triggered task.

You can create policies for computer environment settings that Dynamic Environment Manager applies while end users' computers boot. Horizon Smart Policies for computer environment settings are applied during computer boot and can be refreshed during the reconnection of a session.

With Smart Policies, you can create policies that take effect only if certain conditions are met. For example, you can configure a policy that deactivates the client drive redirection feature if a user connects to a remote desktop from outside your corporate network.

The Smart Policies feature requires Dynamic Environment Manager. For more information, see the topics about Smart Policies in Horizon Remote Desktop Features and GPOs.

For information about using Smart Policies to control the behavior of features on a remote Linux desktop, see Linux Desktops and Applications in Horizon.
