As default Sage 200 Professional deployed via the Sage Provisioning Portal comes with a workspace and several application groups pre-configured for the main Sage 200 application and remote desktop (for business partner access users). Applications and Workspaces are visible in the Azure Portal, within the resource group created by the Sage Provisioning Portal. This resource group is usually <internal site name>-infra-rg.
This is the logical container for all the application groups available on a site. It is the place where you can drill down into and configure each application group.
This manages the applications that can be published and will be available in either the web or native client remote desktop applications. The Sage Provisioning Portal creates three application groups within the main workspace, one for Remote Desktop access, one for the Sage Administration tool (SAA) and one for the main Sage 200 desktop application. Users are granted access to one, many, or all of these groups depending on the role they are assigned in the Sage Provisioning Portal.
Each application consists of a list of applications installed on the virtual machine, together with the list of users who are able to launch those applications.
Publishing your own application
To publish another application, log into the azure portal, and find the resource group. Click on Create.
Search for 'Application Group' and click Create.
Fill in the details, making sure the resource group and host pool are selected correctly. For your subscription, there will probably be only one available.
Since there is already a desktop application group created, the group type will be 'Remote app' so give it a descriptive name which is relevant (no spaces are allowed). Press the 'review + create' button and 'create' and wait for the resource to be created. This should only take a few seconds.
Once the application group is created, you can add applications and assign users by clicking either of the 'manage' links.
NOTE: Users can be added as individual users or they can be assigned by group.
Applications can be added to the list either as items from the windows start menu or by typing in the full command line to the executable.
Add the Application Group to the Workspace, to do this go into the Workspace, click on the Application Group on the lefthand menu and then click Add and add the Application Group.
Once users and applications are assigned, the new application(s) should be visible in the remote desktop client the next time the user logs in.
NOTE: If you have issues during this process or are unsure on part of the process, contact your Cloud Service Provider.
