Virtual Desktop Templates Tab

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)

For Virtual desktop templates tab under Remote Device Properties, see Virtual Desktop Templates Tab.

FlexNet Manager Suite displays the Virtual desktop templates tab on the Inventory Device Properties page when you select Computer as Inventory device type (in the General tab).
Restriction: This tab is not available for inventory device records created to represent Oracle Database running in Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS).
A virtual desktop template is a catalog of software applications with user groups that are entitled to access those applications in a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment. A virtual desktop template is a method to track software usage details in a VDI environment. FlexNet Manager Suite gets the software usage details from the template and user details from Active Directory to track the usage of remote applications by the users, through the inventory devices.

The following inventory device properties (listed alphabetically) are available on this tab.

Field Description
Access mode
The method that this device uses to access a software application. This field can have one of the following values:
  • Blank — When there is an allocation without any supportive installation record from the imported inventory.
  • App-V for a virtualized application delivered through Microsoft App-V
  • Local — The application has been installed locally on the inventory device.
  • XenApp (now known as Citrix Virtual Apps) — The application has been accessed remotely via a Citrix XenApp server.
  • XenDesktop (now known as Virtual Desktops) — The application has been installed on a virtual machine in your VDI infrastructure, and associated with this inventory device because the primary end-user has accessed the software through this inventory device. If your virtual machine image includes the FlexNet inventory agent, this inventory device may have been identified as the end-point from which the end user accessed the VDI. In other circumstances, the end-user may have used a remote device such as a home computer or mobile device that cannot be inventoried; but as the end-user is associated with this inventory device, the application use can be recorded here for license consumption calculations.

FlexNet Manager Suite generates the value of this field.

Only available for Computer, Virtual Machine, and VM Host inventory device types.
