Adobe Acrobat DC Template

This template creates a configuration that checks if the remote device is licensed for Adobe Reader DC. It can be found in the SILO OPTIMIZATION category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If the remote device is not licensed for Adobe Reader DC, you can choose between two actions:

  • Hides Adobe Reader DC from the session with FSLogix App Masking if the remote device is not licensed.
  • Denies Adobe Reader DC within the session with Microsoft AppLocker if the remote device is not licensed.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your remoting and DaaS environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your remoting or DaaS environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started for Remoting and DaaS guide and complete step 1 to 5 and then continue here with step 2 below.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:
