Introduction

VMware Workspace ONE Access can be deployed on-premises or consumed as a cloud service. Deployment of WS1 Access is outside the scope of this lab.

In the module you will integrate VMware Horizon with an on-premises installation of VMware Workspace ONE Access. The Workspace ONE Access  appliance has already been deployed, and you will configure it for Horizon integration.

  • Lesson 1 - Prepare for Horizon integration with WS1 Access
  • Lesson 3 - Configure Horizon Pods and Pod Federations in WS1 Access
  • Lesson 4 - Launching Horizon desktops and applications from Workspace ONE
  • Lesson 5 - Configure Access and Network Policies and Client Access URL
  • Lesson 6 - Launching Horizon Desktops with Deny Access Policy Rule

Integrating Horizon with Workspace ONE Access

Integrating VMware Horizon with the VMware Workspace ONE Access service lets you provide users the ability to access their entitled Horizon desktops and applications from the Workspace ONE portal or app. You can integrate independent Horizon pods, which consist of Horizon Connection Server instances, and pod federations, which contain multiple pods and can span multiple sites and data centers.

You deploy and manage desktop and application pools in the Horizon Administrator interface. You also create entitlements for Active Directory users and groups in Horizon, not in WS1 Access. You must sync these users and groups to the WS1 Access service from Active Directory before integrating with Horizon.

To integrate Horizon pods and pod federations with WS1 Access, you create one or more virtual apps collections in the WS1 Access administration console. The collections contain the configuration information for the pods and pod federations, as well as sync settings. You then sync the Horizon resources and entitlements to WS1 Access.

In the WS1 Access administration console, you can view the Horizon desktops and applications. You can also view user and group entitlements.

End users can run their entitled desktops and applications from the Workspace ONE portal or app. These desktops and apps can be accessed over HTML in a browser or over a supported display protocol in the Horizon Client.
