To add a Web Link app to XenMobile

Feb 13, 2015

In XenMobile, you can establish a Web address (URL) to a public or private site, or to a Web app that doesn't require single sign-on (SSO).

You can configure web links from the Apps tab in the XenMobile console. When you finish configuring the web link, the link appears as an link icon in the list in the Apps table. When users log on with Worx Home, the link appears with the list of available apps and desktops.

To add the link, you provide the following information:

  • Name for the link
  • Description of the link
  • Web address (URL)
  • Category
  • Role
  • Image in .png format (optional)

    Images must be of the type PNG.
  5. Expand Worx Store Configuration to add an FAQ for the app, or add screen captures to help classify the app in the Worx Store. The graphic you upload must be of the type PNG. You cannot upload a GIF or JPEG image.

    In Allow app ratings, click ON to permit a user to rate the app.
  6. In Allow app comments, click ON to permit users to comment about the selected app.
  7. Click Next.

  10. Expand Deployment Schedule to further refine the delivery group.

    1. Deploy: Click ON to enable a deployment schedule.
    2. Deployment Schedule: Click Now or Later to set the deployment schedule.

      Note: This option applies when you have also configured global background deployment keys in the Server Properties section in the Settings area of the XenMobile console. The always-on scheduled policy is not available for iOS devices.
