Overview

Once you have added a Cloudpaging Environment to AppsAnywhere, you are ready to begin deploying applications. However, there are a few things you can customize about that environment if you wish to change the default behaviour. Those settings are described in this article.

Changing Settings

Navigate to the Cloudpaging Settings page:
  1. Log into AppsAnywhere as an admin user

  2. Click on Return to Admin to access the AppsAnywhere admin portal

  3. On the navigation menu at the top of the page, go to Settings > Cloudpaging

Here you will see all of the settings that are available to change.

Setting Name

Description

Expected Value

Cloudpaging Environment

This represents the default Cloudpaging environment, of all those defined in AppsAnywhere. At this point, it is only used in reference to the next setting; Remote Installer License GUID.

Select your main Cloudpaging Environment from the list

Default Provision (For Generated Launch Shortcuts)

This represents the default provision when generating Cloudpaging delivery method launch shortcuts from the Shared App Lists - Request Apps API. This will not have any effect on already existing functionality for generating shortcuts in the admin.

See Generating Shortcuts for more information.

Select the provision you would like to use as the default in this scenario

Remote Installer License GUID

The Windows Install delivery method utilizes a Cloudpaging package in order to initiate the installation of applications on the end user's Windows device. In order to use the Windows Install delivery method, you will need to publish this package to one of your Cloudpaging environments.

The license GUID of the Cloudpaging package used by the Windows Install delivery method

Provider URL

The Provider URL is purely meta information which appears in the Information panel of the Cloudpaging Player when a user virtualizes an application (see image below).

This will typically be the address of your AppsAnywhere instance

The base URL from General Settings will be used as the default for this

Disable Provision Checks

When checked this setting disables provision checks during Cloudpaging launches, this means changes to access (e.g. provision updates) for any existing Cloudpaging sessions or shortcuts will not be updated.

Whether you would like additional checks to ensure the correct users have access to Cloudpaging applications.

Note: In workflows where LDAP is not being used, (SAML only logins) this will need to be checked in order to disable this feature.

Provision Check Frequency

How often, in minutes, that the provision checks are carried out during Cloudpaging launches.

However often you’d like additional checks to take place to ensure the correct users have access to Cloudpaging applications. The default value is 5 minutes.
