Hide RDScollection button RD Gateway 2019

IS there a way to hide the rdscollection button? We have multiple servers added to our rds collection and it's confusing a lot of users.

    What you want to accomplish ?
    You want that come users would not be able to see a specific (or multiple) collection(s) ?

    If it's the case, you can just edit the collection properties and in the user groups only add the specific groups you want.

    Within the RDWeb portal, if a user has rights to access the collection, he will be visible to him. If you remove access to a user to a collection, he will not be able to connect to that collection

    No, by default when a RDS collection is configured it will show an icon RDSCOLLECTION (not for any server that may have been added). I would like to hide that so users will not be confused whether they have to click that or not.

    When a user is member of the session collection (collection properties / user Groups), the user will have access and will see the collection. AFAIK, the only way for a user to not be able to see the collection is to remove the user from Collection User Groups

    I hope I'm not missing anything however the rdscollection (in the red circle) is there even if I do not add any TS servers to the collection. IS there no way we can hide or remove it in 2019 without removing access to the other TS servers in the collection?

    By default, if you install an RDS Farm, as long as you do not create a collection, you should not see anything in the Web Portal.

    When you will create the collection, then it will appear.

    In the Server Manager, are you able to see the the RDSCollection ?
