The Catalog is the repository of all the resources that you can entitle to users. Before you can entitle a particular resource to users, you must populate your catalog with that resource. The method you use to populate the catalog depends on the type of resource.

You can integrate the following types of resources with VMware Identity Manager.

  • Web applications
  • VMware Horizon Cloud Service applications and desktops
  • VMware Horizon® 7, Horizon 6, and View desktop and application pools
  • Citrix-published resources
  • VMware ThinApp® packaged applications

These resources are separated into the Web Apps page for web applications or the Virtual Apps page for Horizon, Citrix, Horizon Cloud, or ThinApp desktop and applications. Web applications can be added to your catalog directly from the Web Apps page.

To integrate and enable Horizon Cloud Service, Horizon Client desktop and application pools, Citrix-published resources , or ThinApp packaged applications, you use the Virtual Apps Collection feature on the Virtual Apps page.

See the Setting Up Resources in VMware Identity Manager guide for information about setting up the resources.
