How to Configure Access to Packages by Using the Management Console

Updated: December 8, 2014

Applies To: Application Virtualization 5.0, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP1, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP2, Application Virtualization 5.0 SP3

Before you deploy an App-V 5.0 virtualized package, you must configure the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) security groups that will be allowed to access and run the applications. The security groups may contain computers or users. Entitling a package to a computer group publishes the package globally to all computers in the group.

Use the following procedure to configure access to virtualized packages.

To grant access to an App-V 5.0 package

  1. Find the package you want to configure:

    1. Open the App-V 5.0 Management console.

    2. To display the AD ACCESS page, right-click the package to be configured, and select Edit active directory access. Alternatively, select the package and click EDIT in the AD ACCESS pane.

  2. Provision a security group for the package:

    1. Go to the FIND VALID ACTIVE DIRECTORY NAMES AND GRANT ACCESS page.

    2. Using the format mydomain \ groupname, type the name or part of the name of an Active Directory group object, and click Check.

      noteNote
      Ensure that you provide an associated domain name for the group that you are searching for.

  3. To grant access to the package, select the desired group and click Grant Access. The newly added group is displayed in the AD ENTITIES WITH ACCESS pane.

  4. To accept the default configuration settings and close the AD ACCESS page, click Close.

    To customize configurations for a specific group, click the ASSIGNED CONFIGURATIONS drop-down and select Custom. To configure the custom configurations, click EDIT. After you grant access, click Close.

To remove access to an App-V 5.0 package

  1. Find the package you want to configure:

    1. Open the App-V 5.0 Management console.

    2. To display the AD ACCESS page, right-click the package to be configured, and select Edit active directory access. Alternatively, select the package and click EDIT in the AD ACCESS pane.

  2. Select the group you want to remove, and click DELETE.

  3. To close the AD ACCESS page, click Close.
