    The following parameters have been added for this purpose:
    • This parameter defines the session name on which the settings are to be used. Also the known wildcards like * and ? are possible here.

    • For "Restrict full-screen session to one monitor" also ica.destination_window.session%.monitor needs to be set.
      For "Expand the session over a self-selected number of monitors" also ica.destination_window.session%.multimonitor_selection needs to be set.
      Further information is also offered via tooltip.

    Note:The same can be achieved on the server side by setting the RDP group policy of "Always prompt for password upon connection".
  • Added options to configure Fabulatech for WVD. This includes Webcam redirection, Scanner redirection, and USB redirection.
  • The USB redirection configuration is still to be done via Sessions > RDP > RDP Global > Fabulatech USB Redirection. Later releases should mirror that under WVD as well.
  • There are global WVD settings to select which redirections (Webcam, Scanner, USB) should be enabled for WVD.
  • There is a switch per WVD session that allows to enable/disable Fabulatech for that sessions respectively.
  • Note: Technically, the Fabulatech redirections are selected system-wide. That means, when Scanner redirection is enabled for Citrix and Webcam redirection is
    enabled for WVD, both these redirections are visible in Citrix and in WVD sessions. Only disabling Fabulatech support in general for a WVD session is possible.

The keep-alive interval in seconds can be configured by the parameter system.icg.websocket.pingpong_interval, 0 disables the keep-alive mechanism.
