Assign Application Group to a Workspace


After an Application Group has been created, how do you assign the Application Group to a Workspace in the Azure Portal?

@Anon4343 Go to the workspace and navigate "application groups" and register the app group. When you created the appgroup, you had the option to register it to a workspace. You can do that for future app groups.

Thank you Pavithra, but I'm not seeing a location to register the application group with a workspace.





@Pavithra Thiruvengadam 


If I go to the workspace, there are no application groups listed. I must be missing something obvious.



@Anon4343 East US 2 is the location of your workspace. Did you create any appgroups in that location? If you want to register an app group to a workspace, it needs to be in the same location.

@Pavithra Thiruvengadam 


Yes, all of the Application Groups are in East US 2.




@Anon4343 So keep in mind that all app groups in a hostpool need to be registered to only 1 workspace. So do check if any app group in the hostpool is already registered to another workspace. I tried all combinations and that is the only explanation.

That does answer another question I had regarding Application Groups -> Workspaces in 1 to many relationships.


There are a few not registered to a Workspace.





I found the issue. Once you assign an Application Group to a Host Pool, you are limited to the Application Groups contained within the assigned Application Group's Workspace. The reason is because a Host Pool can only be part of one Workspace.
