You're receiving this notice because you currently use Azure Virtual Desktop.
Beginning 18 April 2022, we're moving the Azure Virtual Desktop web client to a new URL. The new URL is available
now and ready for use. Please transition to using the new URL before 18 April 2022.
Azure Virtual Desktop Web Client:
Old: https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html
Old: https://www.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html
New: https://client.wvd.microsoft.com/arm/webclient/index.html


Azure Virtual Desktop Classic Web Client:
Old: https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/webclient/index.html
Old: https://www.wvd.microsoft.com/webclient/index.html
New: https://client.wvd.microsoft.com/webclient/index.html
Why is this change happening?This change gives us greater flexibility and opportunity for more frequent web client
releases.
Recommended actionStarting today, configure the new URL with the same permissions and on the same allow lists as
the current URL. Beginning 18 April 2022, end users accessing the old URL will be automatically redirected to the new
URL. Some users will be redirected immediately. The rest will be redirected throughout the week.
