New-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule

Oct 01, 2013

Creates a new application rule in the site's entitlement policy.

Syntax

New-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule [-Name] <String> -DesktopGroupUid <Int32> [-Description <String>] [-Enabled <Boolean>] [-ExcludedUserFilterEnabled <Boolean>] [-ExcludedUsers <User[]>] [-IncludedUserFilterEnabled <Boolean>] [-IncludedUsers <User[]>] [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The New-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule cmdlet adds a new application rule to the site's entitlement policy.

An application rule in the entitlement policy defines the users who are allowed per-session access to a machine to run one or more applications published from the rule's desktop group.

The following constraints apply when creating an application entitlement rule for a desktop group:

o The group's desktop kind must be Shared

o The group's delivery type must be AppsOnly or DesktopsAndApps

o Only a single application rule can apply to a given group

When a user selects an application published from a shared group, a machine is selected from the group on which to run the application. No permanent association exists between the user and the selected machine; once the session ends the association also ends.

Even though only a single application entitlement and therefore session can be defined for a group, the user can still run multiple applications from the group because the applications run within the same session.

Parameters

-Name<String>

Specifies the administrative name of the new application rule. Each rule in the site's entitlement policy must have a unique name (irrespective of whether they are desktop or application rules).

Required? true
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-DesktopGroupUid<Int32>

Specifies the unique ID of the desktop group to which the new application rule applies.

Required? true
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-Description<String>

Specifies an optional description of the new application rule. The text is purely informational for the administrator, it is never visible to the end user.

Required? false
Default Value null
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-Enabled<Boolean>

Specifies whether the new application rule is initially enabled. A disabled rule is ignored when evaluating the site's entitlement policy.

Required? false
Default Value true
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-ExcludedUserFilterEnabled<Boolean>

Specifies whether the excluded users filter is initially enabled. If the filter is disabled then any user entries in the filter are ignored when entitlement policy rules are evaluated.

Required? false
Default Value false
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-ExcludedUsers<User[]>

Specifies the excluded users filter of the application rule, that is, the users and groups who are explicitly denied entitlements to published applications from the desktop group.

This can be used to exclude users or groups who would otherwise gain access by groups specified in the included users filter.

Required? false
Default Value (empty list)
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-IncludedUserFilterEnabled<Boolean>

Specifies whether the included users filter is initially enabled. If the filter is disabled then any user who satisfies the requirements of the access policy is implicitly granted an entitlement to an application session by the new rule.

Users who would be implicitly granted access when the filter is disabled can still be explicitly denied access using the excluded users filter.

Required? false
Default Value true
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-IncludedUsers<User[]>

Specifies the included users filter of the application rule, that is, the users and groups who are granted an entitlement to an application session by the new rule.

If a user appears explicitly in the excluded users filter of the rule or is a member of a group that appears in the excluded users filter, no entitlement is granted whether or not the user appears in the included users filter.

Required? false
Default Value (empty list)
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-LoggingId<Guid>

Specifies the identifier of the high level operation that this cmdlet call forms a part of. Desktop Studio and Desktop Director typically create High Level Operations. PowerShell scripts can also wrap a series of cmdlet calls in a High Level Operation by way of the Start-LogHighLevelOperation and Stop-LogHighLevelOperation cmdlets.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AdminAddress<String>

Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snapin will connect to. This can be provided as a host name or an IP address.

Required? false
Default Value Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.
Accept Pipeline Input? false

Input Type

None You cannot pipe input into this cmdlet.

Return Values

Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.AppEntitlementPolicyRule

New-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule returns the newly created application rule in the entitlement policy.
