TS desktop show shortcut's based on security group

    Question

  • Hello,

    I'm looking to have users connect to a TS desktop and have applications shortcuts appear on the desktop based on their security group membership. So if a user is in an "Oracle" security group they would get an "Oracle" shortcut on their desktop. The tricky thing to this is that I only want these shortcut's to show up on the TS desktop, not their normal workstations.

  • Hi,

    >>The tricky thing to this is that I only want these shortcut's to show up on the TS desktop, not their normal workstations.

    Based on your description, we can use Group Policy Preferences Shortcuts extension to deploy the shortcuts and then utilize GPP Item-Level Targeting to apply the settings to the users who belong to a specific group when they log onto specific computers.

    Regarding GPP Shortcuts extension, the following article can be referred to for more information.

    Regarding GPP ILT, the following article can be referred to for more information.

  • I'm having a heck of a time getting this to work. I have a couple of questions:

    1. Should this be set for the user or computer?

    2. On the preference Item-Level Targeting should I target the security group or the computers it's applied to

    3. Should I bother applying a security filter to the group?

  • I'm also seeing an error when I run the group policy modeling wizard:

    The following GPOs have special alerts: GPO Name: Test Shortcut Icon Alert: Enforced

    Any Ideas, the details are pretty vague
