Frame Delivery Method


There are many different ways in which an application can be delivered to an end user and which one you choose to use could depend on a number of factors such as the type of device they are using, who owns the device or where they are physically located, as a few examples. The Frame delivery method is one of the simplest delivery methods, as it re-directs the end user to a Frame VD or Frame Application web location within their browser.

Before you start

All delivery methods share some basic, common settings that you will need to understand before continuing. Make sure you have read the Common Delivery Method Settings article before continuing.

Once you understand the common settings and how they work, you can go to the application you want to manage:

  1. From the AppsAnywhere admin portal, search for Applications, or go to Applications > Applications in the navigation menu

  2. Click Edit next to the application you wish to manage

The Frame delivery method is also available from the “Desktops” management section of the AppsAnywhere admin portal.

Creating the delivery method

Adding a new delivery method:

  1. On the application edit screen, select the Delivery Methods tab

  2. Under the list of current delivery methods, you will see the Add New Delivery Method section

  3. Click Add delivery method

  4. Select Frame: Launch Link from the “Add New Delivery Method” popup

  5. The form for adding a new Frame: Launch Link delivery method will then load up on the right-hand side

  6. Complete the required details (described below)

  7. Set the Operating System Compatibilities and the Restrictions for your delivery method

  8. Click Save 

If the save was successful, you will see the form replaced with a success message, and your new delivery method will be added to the bottom of the list of delivery methods on the left-hand side.

If there were any errors with the data you entered, you will be prompted to correct these before you can continue.
