After you integrate ThinApp packages with Workspace ONE Access, you can entitle users and groups to the Windows applications that are captured as ThinApp packages.

You can only entitle Workspace ONE Access users, users who are imported from your directory server, to ThinApp packages. When you entitle a user to a ThinApp package, the user sees the application and can start it from the Workspace ONE Access Desktop application on their system. If you remove the entitlement, the user cannot see or start the application.

Often, the most effective way to entitle users to ThinApp packages is to add a ThinApp package entitlement to a group of users. In certain situations entitling individual users to a ThinApp package is more appropriate.


Set up a virtual apps collection for ThinApp packages from the Resources > Virtual Apps Collections page. After you create the collection, sync the ThinApp packages to Workspace ONE Access. When the ThinApp packages are synced to your catalog, you can entitle them to your users and groups.


  1. Log in to the Workspace ONE Access console.
  2. Entitle users to a ThinApp package.
    Option Description
    Access a ThinApp package and entitle users or groups to it.
    1. Select Resources > Virtual Apps.
    2. (Optional) Click the icon in the Type column heading and select ThinApp Package to view all ThinApp packages. You can also search for a ThinApp package by name.
    3. Select the package and click Assign.
    4. Select users and groups by typing the name in the search box and selecting from the results.
    5. Select the deployment type for each user and group.

      Regardless of whether you select User Activated or Automatic, the application is added to the Apps page in the Intelligent Hub portal or app. Users can run the application from the Apps page or mark it as a favorite and run it from the Favorites page. However, if you want to set up an approval flow for the application, select User Activated.

    6. Click Save.
    Access a user or group and add ThinApp package entitlements to that user or group.
    1. To assign ThinApp packages to a user, select Accounts > Users.

      To assign ThinApp packages to a group, select Accounts > User Groups.

    2. Click the name of an individual user or group.
    3. Select the Applications tab, then click Assign.
    4. Click in the search box, and either type the ThinApp package name and select it or select the package from the list.
    5. Click Save.


The selected users or groups are now entitled to use the ThinApp package.
