After you add Web applications to your catalog, you can entitle users and groups to them.

You can only entitle VMware Identity Manager users, users who are imported from your directory server, to Web applications. When you entitle a user to a Web application, the user sees the application and can launch it from their apps portal. If you remove the entitlement, the user cannot see or launch the application.

In many cases, the most effective way to entitle users to Web applications is to add a Web application entitlement to a group of users. However, in certain situations entitling individual users to a Web application is more appropriate.
