Use the AppStream 2.0 Client to Start a Streaming Session

After you install the AppStream 2.0 client on your local computer, you can use the client to connect to a streaming session. Use either of the following access methods, as required for your organization:

  • The AppStream 2.0 API

  • SAML 2.0 [single sign-on (SSO)]

  • User pool

AppStream 2.0 API

In the AppStream 2.0 client sign-in page, enter the streaming URL that you created as the web address, and then choose Connect.

SAML 2.0

If you use 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 pre-populated 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 Start URL for AppStream 2.0 Client Users

User pool

In the AppStream 2.0 client sign-in page, enter the URL that was provided in your welcome email, and then choose Connect.
