You create an application pool as part of the process to give users access to an application that runs on RDS hosts or a desktop pool.



  1. In Horizon Console, select Inventory > Applications.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Specify whether you want to add the pool manually, add it from installed applications, or add it from an App Volumes Manager.
    If you choose to add an application pool manually, use the configuration information you gathered in the worksheet. If you select applications from the list that Horizon Console displays, you can select multiple applications. A separate pool is created for each application.

What to do next

Entitle users to access the pool. You can also view the number of entitled users that are using a published application in the User Count column in the application pools page.

If you need to ensure that Connection Server launches the application only on RDS hosts that have sufficient resources to run the application, configure an anti-affinity rule for the application pool.
Note: For applications running on desktop pools, the anti-affinity rule is supported only for applications created from floating desktop pools, and not from dedicated desktop pools.

See Configure an Anti-Affinity Rule for an Application Pool in Horizon Console.

If you have connected your pod to Horizon Cloud and want information on configuring published desktop pools for use in a Universal Broker environment, see Horizon Pods - Configure RDSH Desktops and Applications for a Universal Broker Environment.
