Friendly Name for RemoteApps

Friendly Name for RemoteApps

When a host pool is created, the Friendly Name is populated with the host pool name.

Note: From the host pool's action menu, select PropertiesAVD to change the Friendly Name.

Similarly, Nerdio Manager automatically populates the Friendly Name field for individual RemoteApps under a host pool with the same name as the app selected. However, you can assign a Friendly Name when you create a RemoteApp.

To assign a Friendly Name to a RemoteApp:

  1. At the Account level, navigate to AVDHost Pools.

  2. Select the host pool with RemoteApp (Pooled) you want to work with.

  3. From the action menu, select ManageRemoteApps.

  4. Select Add RemoteApp.

    Note: When adding the RemoteApp, the host must be switched on and the applications must be already installed that you want to publish.

  5. Enter the following information:

    • Application: From the drop-down list, select the application.

    • Name: Type the name of the RemoteApp.

      Note: The Name is visible to the user unless overridden by the Friendly Name.

    • Friendly Name: Optionally, type the friendly name that is visible to the user.

    • Description: Type the description that is visible to the admin.

    • File Path: Type the path to the application executable on the session host.

    • Icon Path: Optionally, type the path to an icon file to be used for this RemoteApp when it appears in the user's Remote Desktop feed.

    • Icon Index: Optionally, type the numeric icon index in the icon file.

    • Command Line Setting: Select this option to require a command line setting.

  6. Once you have entered the desired information, select OK.

    All users that are assigned to the host pool now have access to the published app.
