Azure Virtual Desktop - Restricting Access based on the Remote Desktop Client App Version

Copper Contributor



What are the current options for restricting access to the AVD Service based on the version of the Remote Desktop Client App?  I would have thought CA policy could achieve this, but it doesnt seem to be granualar enough.


Thanks in advance.


AVD - Win10 Multi-User

Identity - Entra Domain Services (AAD-DS)

Restricting the version.  Good example would be to prevent users from coming into the AVD environment when they are using a version of the Remote Desktop Client app that is 2 years out of date or more. 


I'm aware that in the past Microsoft have blocked older unsupported versions from accessing the AVD Service:


Thanks in advance.



Hi Redsman13,

This is not possible.

Conditional access policies can only target these Azure Virtual Desktop resources:

  • Azure Virtual Desktop with app ID "9cdead84-a844-4324-93f2-b2e6bb768d07"
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop with app ID "a4a365df-50f1-4397-bc59-1a1564b8bb9c"
  • Windows Cloud Login with app ID "270efc09-cd0d-444b-a71f-39af4910ec45"
