Web applications

From the cloud application catalog – Popular enterprise Web application types are listed in the cloud application catalog. These applications are partially configured. You must complete the rest of the application record form.

Create a new one – You can add Web applications to your catalog that are not listed in the cloud application catalog. The application record for these Web applications are more generic than that of cloud application catalog applications. You enter the application description and configuration information to create the application record.

Import a ZIP or JAR file – You can import a Web application that you previously configured in the service. You might want to use this method to move a deployment from staging to production. In such a situation, you export a Web application from the staging deployment as a ZIP file. You then import the ZIP file to the production deployment

We need to configure appropriate file server share to store application packages. Next from Identity Manager click Manage Desktop Application > ThinApp application
