This article is a follow up of Create and Configure Horizon View 6.1 Cloud Pod. I want to show you the process for creating of a global entitlement and some of the limitations of the View Cloud Pod architecture.
Once the Cloud Pod is enabled and configured, new menu will appear under Catalog in the View Administrator of any of your Pods.
From this view you can create your entitlements by clicking in Add…
This most probably looks you familiar, since it is similar of one of the stages of a Pool creation. The values of those settings should be the same as the desktop pool which you are planning to you as a Global.
Next step is to select users or groups which will be part of the entitlement.
Once it is ready you will be returned to the Global Entitlements portal.
Now you have to assigned a desktop pool for the created Entitlement. This can be done by clicking on the Name of the entitlement, which will redirect you to its properties. By Navigating to Local Pools you can select which local pool (from the Pod where you are logged now) which you want to use.
If you don’t see anything, means you don’t have a suitable pool which is limitation #1 from my list.
Limitation #2 – Cloud pod does not support HTML access. Which means if you are entitled to use a desktop from the cloud pod, you will not see it from the web based client.
Limitation #3 – You can not use Global entitlements for Hosted Apps.
I believe Cloud Pod architecture will keep evolving and those limitations will be eliminated with the future releases.
