How to Allow Only Administrators to Enable Connection Groups

You can configure the App-V client so that only administrators (not end users) can enable or disable connection groups. In earlier versions of App-V, you could not prevent end users from performing these tasks.

Note
This feature is supported starting in App-V 5.0 SP3.

Use one of the following methods to allow only administrators to enable or disable connection groups.

Method Steps

Group Policy setting

Enable the “Require publish as administrator” Group Policy setting, which is located in the following Group Policy Object node:

Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > App-V > Publishing

PowerShell cmdlet

Run the Set-AppvClientConfiguration cmdlet with the –RequirePublishAsAdmin parameter.

Parameter values:

  • 0 - False

  • 1 - True

Example:: Set-AppvClientConfiguration –RequirePublishAsAdmin1
