You can integrate Web apps and Virtual Apps with VMware Workspace ONE® Access™ (formerly known as VMware Identity Manager™) to make these apps and desktops available to end users in the VMware Workspace ONE® Intelligent Hub app and portal. Workspace ONE Access provides multi-factor authentication, conditional access, and single sign-on to the apps.

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

  • Web apps
  • Virtual apps
    • VMware Horizon® applications and desktops
    • Citrix-published resources
    • VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™ applications and desktops

      See Providing Access to VMware Horizon Cloud Service Desktops and Applications in Workspace ONE Access for information on the types of Horizon Cloud Service environments supported.

    • VMware ThinApp® packaged applications
      Note: Integration with ThinApp packaged applications is only supported with the legacy VMware Identity Manager connector (Linux) version 2018.8.1.0.

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 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.
