2. Select Applications

In the New Assignment window, select Desktops.

3. Provide Fixed Attributes

  1. In the Definition step under the Type pop-up menu, select Remote.
  2. Under Fixed Attributes, provide the following information:
    • Location: Select the location of the pod where the session desktops should be provided.
    • Pod: Select the pod.
  3. Under Flexible Attributes, enter the Assignment Name, a memorable name to help end users identify this assignment, using only letters, hyphens, and numbers.
  4. In the lower right corner, click Next.

4. Select Applications

  1. In the Applications tab, select the applications to add.
  2. In the lower right, click Next.

5. Select Users and Groups

  1. In the Users tab, search users and groups in your registered Active Directory domains and select the ones for this assignment.
