New-BrokerAppAssignmentPolicyRule

Nov 18, 2015

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

Syntax

New-BrokerAppAssignmentPolicyRule [-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-BrokerAppAssignmentPolicyRule cmdlet adds a new application rule to the site's assignment policy.

An application rule in the assignment policy defines the users who are entitled to a self-service persistent machine assignment from the rule's desktop group; once assigned the machine can run one or more applications published from the group.

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

o The group's desktop kind must be Private

o The group's delivery type must be AppsOnly

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

o Application assignment rules cannot be applied to RemotePC groups.

When a user selects an application published from a private group, a currently unassigned machine is selected from the group and permanently assigned to the user. An application session is then launched to the machine. Subsequent launches are routed directly to the now assigned machine.

Once a machine has been assigned in this way, the original assignment rule plays no further part in access to the machine.

Parameters

-Name<String>

Specifies the administrative name of the new application rule. Each rule in the site's assignment 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 assignment 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 assignment policy rules are evaluated.

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

-ExcludedUsers<User[]>

Specifies the excluded users filter of the new application rule, that is, the users and groups who are explicitly denied an entitlement to a machine assignment from the rule.

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 a machine assignment by the new application 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 new application rule, that is, the users and groups who are granted an entitlement to a machine assignment by the 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.AppAssignmentPolicyRule

New-BrokerAppAssignmentPolicyRule returns the newly created application rule in the assignment policy.

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS> $dg = Get-BrokerDesktopGroup 'Sales Support' 
C:\PS> New-BrokerAppAssignmentPolicyRule 'UK Office' -DesktopGroupUid $dg.Uid -IncludedUsers sales\uk-staff

Creates an application rule in the assignment policy that grants all members of the SALES\uk-staff group an entitlement to a single machine from the Sales Support desktop group. The machine can be used for running applications published from the group.
