By integrating your organization's View, Horizon 6, or Horizon 7 environment with your VMware Identity Manager deployment, you give your VMware Identity Manager users the ability to use the My Apps portal to access their entitled View desktop and application pools. You can integrate independent View pods, which consist of View Connection Server instances, and pod federations, which contain multiple pods and can span multiple sites and data centers.

You deploy and manage desktop and application pools in the View administrator interface. You also create entitlements for Active Directory users and groups in View. When you integrate View pods or pod federations with your VMware Identity Manager service, you sync information about these resources and entitlements to VMware Identity Manager. In the VMware Identity Manager administration console, you can see the associations between users and groups and the View pools to which they are entitled.

For information about configuring View, see the View, Horizon 6, or Horizon 7 documentation.
