Published applications not showing up, AVD

David Pereira 5 Reputation points

I have published a couple apps on a lab but they are not showing on the remote desktop client or under the web gateway.

I have tried to recreate the workspace and application group to no avail, I have confirmed the assignments are correct, and if I search for the users I can confirm that the individual assignments show the application group.

Any idea why this isn't working?

    Hi @David Pereira ,

    did you add the user(s) or related groups to the RBAC role Desktop Virtualization User of the related Application Group?

    Found what the issue was,

    It looks like you can publish remote apps and desktops under the same host group but if you assign them both to a user only the desktop shows up.

    When I created the Host Group the desktop is automatically published then when I created a Application group to publish e.g. Access and I couldn't list it on the web gateway or the Remote Desktop Client.

    Once I removed the Desktop assignment from my test user I could see and launch the Apps.
