You can add applications and desktops to the Workspace ONE Access (formerly known as VMware Identity Manager) catalog to make them available to users in Workspace ONE.

You can integrate the following types of resources with Workspace ONE Access:

  • Web apps
  • Virtual apps
    • VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ applications and desktops
    • VMware Horizon® 7 and Horizon 6 desktop and application pools
    • Citrix-published resources
    • VMware ThinApp® packaged applications
      Note: Integration with ThinApp packaged applications is only supported with the legacy Linux VMware Identity Manager connector. It is not supported with the Windows connector.
Important: Citrix, Horizon, Horizon Cloud, and ThinApp integrations are not available with the Workspace ONE Access 20.01 connector.
  • To use ThinApp packaged applications, use the VMware Identity Manager connector (Linux) version 2018.8.1.0.
  • To use other Virtual Apps, such Horizon desktops and applications or Citrix published resources, use the VMware Identity Manager connector (Windows) version 19.03.

Except for Web applications, each resource type requires you to integrate Workspace ONE Access with another product or component.

You integrate these resources from the Catalog tab in the Workspace ONE Access console.

  • To integrate Web applications, you use the Catalog > Web Apps tab.

    Catalog - Web Apps menu item

  • To integrate and manage Horizon desktop and application pools, Horizon Cloud desktops and applications, Citrix-published resources, or ThinApp packaged applications, you use the Catalog > Virtual Apps Collections and Catalog > Virtual Apps tabs. You configure the integrations in the Catalog > Virtual Apps Collections page and view the synced resources in the Catalog > Virtual Apps page.
