Labs allows administrators to select the specific applications that should be published to a Class desktop. Publishing an application means that a shortcut to launch the application will be created for all users of that Class.
For example, if students need to access the Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator applications, an administrator creates a new Class using the Adobe Creative Cloud image and only publishes those two specific applications. When students launch the Class, they will only see shortcuts for those two applications, even though the image contains other Creative Cloud applications.
Administrators can select the applications to publishing during the creation of a new Class in the Labs Admin Portal (labs-admin.itopia.com) or by editing an existing Class in the Admin Portal. If the published applications are changed for a Class, the change will be reflected in any new Labs sessions that are launched for that Class.
NOTE: Publishing an application does not prevent unpublished applications from running. Using our previous example, if the Class only has Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator published and the student attempts to open a Premiere Pro project within their Labs session, Adobe Premiere Pro will launch and work as expected. If specific applications must be restricted from running, contact itopia Support and request a custom image.
