Where is the WVD management portal?

Is the "management portal" I have seen in various demos not available in the public preview of WVD?

@Thomas Aure : We are finalizing last touches and will let you know on this forum when ready. @Pavithra Thiruvengadam  - FYI.

Any estimates on this? Will it be released before GA?

You can setup the management UI using the following instructions. This is not integrated into the Azure portal but a standalone AppService-based UI:

To start, go to this GitHub URL.

Deploy the template to Azure

If you're deploying in an Enterprise subscription, scroll down and select Deploy to Azure, then skip ahead fill out the parameters.

If you're deploying in a Cloud Solution Provider subscription, follow these steps to deploy to Azure:

  1. Scroll down and right-click Deploy to Azure, then select Copy Link Location.
  2. Open a text editor like Notepad and paste the link there.
  3. Right after “” and before the hashtag (#) enter an at sign (@) followed by the tenant domain name. Here's an example of the format you should use:
  4. Sign into the Azure portal as a user with Admin/Contributor permissions to the Cloud Solution Provider subscription.
  5. Paste the link you copied to the text editor into the address bar.

Here is the guidance on the parameters you should enter:

To launch the UI, click on appservice with name you provided in the template (e.g. Apr3UX) and navigate to the URL associated with it (e.g.

Sign in using the Your Windows Virtual Desktop credentials.

Hi Pavithra, Do you know when the management portal will be released?

Any update on this console?
Is anyone from the Microsoft team watching this page? Can we have an update please?

There has not been any activity on this in a while. Did the portal get released and I missed it? Any update would be great.

@Pavithra Thiruvengadam @Thomas Aure on following the instructions, I got the portal app service deployed.

After running the update ps1 script i get the below error from the URL.


AADSTS900144: The request body must contain the following parameter: 'client_id'.


No clarity on this part.

@RajVenkat If you re trying to manage the Azure portal integration, then you need to just visit

Hi @Pavithra Thiruvengadam, We are already using But all the Host Pools and WVDs created earlier (via PowerShell) are not visible in the portal.

For example in Azure FreeTrial mode we created entire WVD stack.  Post expiry we moved to PayAsYouGo mode.  Now the subscription ID is changed. However we managed to clear most of the earlier parameters and created WVDs and a Win2019 server as DNS. We are stuck in one step of "New-RdsRolesAssignment". Get-RdsRolesAssignment has earlier Subscription's App ID.  Now the Subscription ID and App ID is different.  There is no way we can change or remove that. We hit a dead end and cannot use the created WVD.

We don't have access to the data where MS manages RdsRolesAssignment, RdsTenant etc.

When you can't see any of the previously created Host Pools or associate a TenantName with HostPool using PowerShell/ISE or Portal is there any solution at all?

I believe all this info has been documented in various places - you cannot manage Classic resources using Azure portal. You will need to create new ARM resources or migrate the existing Classic ones to manage using the portal. Migration can be manual if you have a small WVD env but for larger env, we request you to wait for our automation tool - No ETA. @RajVenkat 


I think you also have different problem - did you move a subscription from 1 AAD tenant to another?
