I've succesfully deployed a Windows Virtual Desktop tenant and host pool. However, I'm trying to publish a remote app, which is not showing in the webfeed of the assigned user.
Add-RdsAppGroupUser TENANTNAME POOLNAME RemoteApps-Test -UserPrincipalName email@example.com
Add-RdsAppGroupUser : The specified UserPrincipalName(s) is already assigned to a Desktop AppGroup in the specified HostPool.
Powershell commands to diagnose the failure:
Get-RdsDiagnosticActivities -ActivityId b013d027-07f6-4ffa-a848-6ff7e1e2508a

@markkrolwsb : Windows Virtual Desktop has the restriction that within a host pool, a user cannot be assigned to both a desktop app group and a RemoteApp app group. This means that you'll have to first remove the user assignment (Remove-RdsAppGroupUser) to the desktop app group before you can re-assign that user (Add-RdsAppGroupUser) to the RemoteApp app group.

I tried creating another host pool in the same tenant and then created a new RemoteApp App Group. Assigned to the same user and it works. So that means we can assign a user with RemoteApp and Desktop App group but it should be from different host pool and not from same pool.@markkrolwsb

@Rg035 : The reason we don't have this behavior supported by default is because of the trickiness of having 2 sessions on the VM, since the desktop session is different than a RemoteApp session. We've heard similar feedback from other customer engagements.
