After you create a virtual apps collection for the Horizon Cloud tenant in the VMware Identity Manager console, configure SAML authentication in the Horizon Cloud tenant.

If you are integrating multiple Horizon Cloud tenants, ensure that you configure SAML authentication in all the tenants.

Note: The Horizon Cloud tenant appliance and VMware Identity Manager must be in time sync. If they are not in time sync, when you try to launch Horizon Cloud desktops and applications, an invalid SAML message appears.

Procedure

  1. In the VMware Identity Manager console, select the Catalog > Web Apps tab, then click Settings.
  2. In the left pane, under SaaS Apps, click SAML Metadata.
  3. In the Download SAML Metadata tab, click Copy URL next to the Identity Provider (IdP) metadata link.
    The URL, which is in a format similar to https:// VMwareIdentityManagerFQDN/SAAS/API/1.0/GET/metadata/idp.xml, is copied to your clipboard.
