Once you have confirmed which users will have access to the remote desktop service, you will need to choose a connection method (9) for each user. They have the option of connecting using either the Applications Launchpad or the Virtual Desktop. Then, you will need to set the permissions for each user (User or Administrator) (10).

Next,  select the applications from the Marketplace that you need to install on the remote desktop (12). If you need to install applications that are not available on the Marketplace, you will need to do this later following a different procedure (to find out more, see the tutorial entitled: How to Install Any Application on Your Remote Desktop).

Step 2: Link users to the applications that they are going to use.


The platform will then recommend a server configuration based on the number of users and applications you have selected. If you wish to choose a different configuration, click on “Choose Another Configuration” (15). If you are happy with the recommended configuration, click the “Save” button (16) to create and configure your service.

Step 2: Choose the server configuration and resources linked to your remote desktop.


At this point, your remote desktop will be automatically configured. This is a lengthy process that involves multiple tasks, such as creating virtual machines, creating new users and installing applications. As a result, the entire process can take between 15 and 20 minutes. Even if the remote desktop card is visible on the dashboard, it is still possible that the service is not yet available. Please wait patiently, and your service will soon be up and running.

We hope that this tutorial has been useful for you.


  • Subscription: This is simply an administrative term in order to manage products. Creating a subscription establishes the contractual basis required to deploy a service. With the remote desktop, this creates the contractual basis for deploying, monitoring and managing the IT resources, applications and users of the product.
  • Application: Program designed to allow a user to carry out one or more tasks.
  • User: Any individual registered on the platform.
  • VM (Virtual Machine): Software that simulates an IT system and can run programmes as if it were a real computer. The processes that can be executed are limited by the available resources on the server.
