Detailed Description

The Set-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule cmdlet modifies an existing application rule in 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.

Changing a rule does not affect existing sessions launched using the rule, but if the change removes an entitlement to a machine that was previously granted, users may be unable to reconnect to a disconnected session on that machine.

Parameters

-InputObject<AppEntitlementPolicyRule[]>

The application rule in the entitlement policy to be modified.

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

-Name<String>

The name of the application rule in the entitlement policy to be modified.

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

-PassThru<SwitchParameter>

This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it returns the affected record.

Required? false
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AddExcludedUsers<User[]>

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

See the ExcludedUsers parameter for more information.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AddIncludedUsers<User[]>

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

See the IncludedUsers parameter for more information.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Description<String>

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

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Enabled<Boolean>

Enables or disables the application rule. A disabled rule is ignored when evaluating the site's entitlement policy.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-ExcludedUserFilterEnabled<Boolean>

Enables or disables the excluded users filter. If the filter is disabled then any user entries in the filter are ignored when entitlement policy rules are evaluated.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-ExcludedUsers<User[]>

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

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

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-IncludedUserFilterEnabled<Boolean>

Enables or disables the included users filter. 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 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  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-IncludedUsers<User[]>

Changes the included users filter of the rule, that is, the users and groups who are granted an entitlement to an application session 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  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-RemoveExcludedUsers<User[]>

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

See the ExcludedUsers parameter for more information.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-RemoveIncludedUsers<User[]>

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

See the IncludedUsers parameter for more information.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-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

Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.AppEntitlementPolicyRule The application rule in the entitlement policy rule to be modified.

Return Values

None or Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.AppEntitlementPolicyRule

This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it generates a Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.AppEntitlementPolicyRule object.

Examples

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

C:\PS> Set-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule 'Temp Workers' -AddIncludedUsers office\contractors

Adds the user group OFFICE\contractors to those entitled to run applications from the rule's associated desktop group. This grants all members of that group an entitlement to an application session from that group.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS> Set-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule 'Temp Workers' -Enabled $false

Disables the Temp Workers application rule in the entitlement policy. This prevents further application sessions being launched using this rule until it is re-enabled. However, access to existing application sessions is not affected.
