After you create users for unauthenticated access, you must enable unauthenticated access in the Connection Server to enable users to connect and access published applications.


  1. In Horizon Console, select Settings > Servers.
  2. Click the Connection Servers tab.
  3. Select the Connection Server instance and click Edit.
  4. Click the Authentication tab.
  5. Change Unauthenticated Access to Enabled.
  6. From the Default unauthenticated access user drop-down menu, select a user as the default user.
    The default user must be present on the local pod in a Cloud Pod Architecture environment. If you select a default user from a different pod, Connection Server creates the user on the local pod before it makes the user the default user.
  7. (Optional) Enter the default session timeout for the user.
    The default session timeout is 10 minutes after being idle.
  8. Click OK.

What to do next

Entitle unauthenticated users to published applications. See Entitle Unauthenticated Access Users to Published Applications.
