Virtual Desktop Templates Tab

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)

When a user accesses a remote application in a virtual desktop infrastructure, FlexNet Manager Suite uses the VDI template to track the application access. A virtual desktop template is a method to track software access details in a VDI environment. FlexNet Manager Suite gets the software access details from the template and user details from the Active Directory to track the access of remote applications by the users, through the inventory devices. The Access mode displays the method used by an inventory device to access an application.

For more information about using lists, filters, and other UI options, see the topics under Using Lists in FlexNet Manager Suite. The following table displays the virtual desktop template properties in an alphabetical order:

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.
VDI template name

Whenever the assigned or calculated user for this device accesses a virtual desktop instance, FlexNet Manager Suite determines the VDI template from which that virtual desktop instance was spawned. That VDI template is listed here.
