How to Disable Downloads of SGD Clients within a Secure Global Desktop Deployment (Doc ID 2584085.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.4 to 5.4 [Release 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Secure Global Desktop (SGD) Administrator asks if it is possible to customize a SGD deployment so that users are unable to download the "installable" SGD Clients on their local devices.

Note: It is important to note that the default client modality presented to users in SGD 5.4 is the installed client.  These actions are not recommended unless additional server-side configuration has been implemented in parallel.  In this particular scenario, the SGD Administrator has previously disabled the option for the "Installed Client" in favor of an alternate connection modality within the Client Options window, using the guidance outlined within (Doc ID 2434083.1).
  • How to Modify the SGD Client Modes Offered to Connecting Users (Doc ID 2434083.1)

In this use case, the SGD Administrator is working to adhere to a site-specific deployment requirement to preclude the need to support troubleshooting or managing multiple versions of client software on connecting devices.

This customization example is provided AS-IS, for reference purposes only.
