The Hosted Apps and Desktops service allows service providers to provision customers and resellers with XenApp and Desktop applications, desktops, and resources either directly from a XenApp or XenDesktop controller or through App Orchestration.
Before provisioning the service, configure the service and then configure offerings.
If you have the Service Schema Administrator role, you can also specify host header, Web Server, customer creation, remote directory, and message information.
If you have the Service Schema Administrator role, you can also specify display name and Active Directory information. You can specify the datacenter address if you are using App Orchestration.
Multi-user service provisioning and offering management features are available in Hosted Apps and Desktops Service 11.5.3 and later versions.
To access the bulk user operations in the Hosted Apps and Desktops Service:
When performing bulk user operations, different usability modes align with specific uses.
Used when performing initial service provisioning and final service deprovisioning or when performing offering management where all selected users have the same set of app and desktop offerings:
Service provisioning: Provision a specific set of app and desktop offerings to multiple users. These users are configured access for only the specified offerings. Any offerings not selected are removed. Selected offerings will be provisioned. Unselected offerings will be de-provisioned.
Service deprovisioning: Remove access to all offerings and deprovision the Hosted Apps and Desktops service from selected users.
You perform deprovisioning by not selecting any of checkbox options for additive or subtractive provisioning. Click Deprovision, and the selected offerings are ignored. All offerings will be de-provisioned and the service will be deprovisioned from the user.
Additive provisioning: Used for bulk user offering management of users with different application sets. Provision selected app and desktop offerings to multiple users. Access is only granted for the selected offerings. No access to existing offerings is revoked.
In this operation mode the selected offerings are provisioned to users and other offering settings remain unchanged.
Subtractive de-provisioning: Access is revoked only for the selected offerings. No other offering access are changed.
The selected offerings are deprovisioned from the users. Users’ original offerings remain unchanged.
