To integrate independent View pods, you add the View Connection Server details in the VMware Identity Manager administration console and sync with the View Connection Server.

Before you perform any integration tasks in the VMware Identity Manager administration console, set up View. You create and configure View pools in View, not in VMware Identity Manager. You also set entitlements for Active Directory users and groups in View.

Integrating View involves the following high-level tasks.

Deploy and configure View.

Deploy View desktop and application pools, with entitlements set for Active Directory users and groups.

Enable the userPrincipalName attribute in the VMware Identity Manager administration console, on the User Attributes page.

Sync Active Directory users and groups who are entitled to View pools in View Connection Server instances to the VMware Identity Manager service using directory sync.

Join VMware Identity Manager to the same Active Directory domain as View.

Add View pods to VMware Identity Manager.

Configure SAML authenticator on the View Connection Server. You must always use the VMware Identity Manager FQDN on the Authenticator configuration page.
