Selecting Cloud Desktop as role type allows the administrator to launch "light-weight" linux environment. It provides a locked-down Desktop experience with no Start menu. This minimal graphical interface will allow user to access fewer applications.

Map Stations to Cloud Desktop Session Container


Once Cloud Desktop session container is created, stations can be "mapped" or assigned by simply dragging-and-dropping the station icons to this session container. To change configuration (for example, to change the default URL), click on the session name to open the "Edit Session Container" window.

Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.
