Configure a Connection Method for Your AppStream 2.0 Client Users

After you install the AppStream 2.0 client on your users' local computers, they can use the AppStream 2.0 client to connect to a streaming session. You can configure one or more of the following connection methods, as required for your organization.

Streaming URL

In the AppStream 2.0 client sign-in page, users enter the streaming URL that you created as the web address, and then choose Connect. To create a streaming URL, use one of the following methods:

SAML 2.0

If you use Single Sign-on Access (SAML 2.0) to federate your users to an AppStream 2.0 stack, you must create a registry value to configure the AppStream 2.0 client with a prepopulated URL whenever the client is launched. The URL must use a certificate that is trusted by the device. The certificate must contain a Subject Alternative Name (SAN) that includes the URL's domain name. For more information, see Set the StartURL Registry Value for AppStream 2.0 Client Users.

AppStream 2.0 user pool

When you create a new user in the AppStream 2.0 user pool, or asssign a user pool user to an AppStream 2.0 stack, AppStream 2.0 sends email to users on your behalf. In the AppStream 2.0 client sign-in page, users enter the URL that was provided in the welcome email, enter their credentials, and then choose Connect. For more information, see AppStream 2.0 User Pools.

For step-by-step guidance that you can provide your users to help them with connecting to AppStream 2.0 and starting a streaming session, see Connect to AppStream 2.0.
