Local Logon

Menu path: Setup > Sessions > Horizon Client > Horizon Client Global > Local Logon

In this area, you can prepopulate user data. As a result, you can avoid users possibly having to log in a number of times.


You can change the following settings:

  • Use local login window:

    The local login window of the thin client will be used to log in to the server. If you use the local login window, you can prepopulate login information.

    The local login window will not be used. (default)

  • Preset logon information:

    Login information will appear automatically in the logon window. With Type, you can specify the source of the logon information. (default)

  • Type:
    • Set user/domain from last login: The login information from the last session will appear automatically in the login window.
    • Set user/domain from session setup: Session-specific login information will appear automatically in the login window. The session-specific login information is described under Connection Settings.
    • Set user/domain from appliance mode: If this option is enabled, the login information specified in the Appliance Mode for VMWare Horizon will appear automatically in the logon window.
  • Show domain:

    The domain will be shown in the logon window. (default)

  • Relaunch mode:

    The login window is shown in relaunch mode and cannot be closed.

    The login window is not shown in relaunch mode. (default)

  • Exit on disconnect or when an error occurs:

    The session will be ended completely when the connection is terminated.

    The connection overview will be shown when the connection is terminated. (default)
