After you add Web applications to your catalog, you can entitle users and groups to them.

About this task

You can entitle VMware Identity Manager users to Web applications. When you entitle a user to a Web application, the user sees the application and can launch it from their Workspace ONE portal. If you remove the entitlement, the user cannot see or launch the application.

In many cases, the most effective way to entitle users to Web applications is to add a Web application entitlement to a group of users. However, in certain situations entitling individual users to a Web application is more appropriate.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the administration console.
  2. Entitle users to a Web application.

    Method

    Description

      You can search for users or groups by starting to type a search string and allowing the autocomplete feature to list the options, or you can click browse to view the entire list.
