Hi,

 

The existing WVD administration has limited options in terms of manager user sessions. The L1 support is obviously not well equipped to handle user session issues from Azure portal for WVD. Administrating WVD through Powershell is not easy for L1 support folks especially since they were previously supporting Citrix XenApp platform for application virtualization which does have pretty good portal for handling all aspects of App publishing/user session management.

 

Are there any third party tools available that are approved by Microsoft. If yes, please advise. 

 

Regards,

Kanth

WVDAdmin from Marcel Meurer is a great tool. 

Thanks a lot @Johan Vanneuville . The tool is indeed pretty good but I just hope the tool is assessed by someone from security perspective. 

Nerdio Manager is a WVD admin tool as well. DM me if you want a demo.
