Entering AWS Registration Codes via Broker Address Cache List

If you have an allotment of AWS WorkSpaces that are available for a Zero Client user to use, you can add up to 50 of them to a Zero Client running firmware 21.10.0 or newer via a Management Console profile. These added Workspaces will not be editable via the Zero Client OSD or AWI and will be displayed as a list from the OSD Connect drop-down menu when the Zero Client Connection Server Cache Mode is set to Read Only.

To apply a bulk additions of Amazon WorkSpaces from Management Console you must enter the Amazon WorkSpace Registration Codes via a profile's Session > Broker Address Cache List setting. This can be done individually or in bulk using a comma separated (CSV) file.

Broker Cache List

  • Pushing a profile with Broker Address Cache entries will overwrite the current Zero Client Broker Address Cache list.

  • Amazon Workspaces Connection type will allow you to bulk upload up to 50 Registration Codes to the Broker Server cache list from a CSV file.

  • Autodetect, PCoIP Connection Manager and View Connection Server sessions have separate server caches that do not have a bulk loading option and have a upper limit of 25 entries.

The CSV file must meet the following requirements to upload successfully:

  • must not be empty

  • must be a CSV file format

  • must not have a header row

  • the first column must contain the WorkSpaces Registration Code

  • must not have an empty first column entry

  • must not have more than 50 entries

    • If there are existing cached entries, the number of csv entries plus the existing cached entries must not exceed 50
  • must not contain duplicate entries

  • must not contain commas

If the file only contains entries in the first column, then the column entries will be used as both AWS WorkSpaces Registration Code and AWS WorkSpaces Registration Name.
