Support Remote Desktop Web Client HTML5 on Azure AD App Proxy
Microsoft doesn't support the Azure AD Application Proxy on RD WebClient (HTML5). Like this MFA and Condintional Access would be possible.
Another benefit is that HTML5 works on all Webbrowsers without downloading software.
We are starting investigation to make this integration happen. We will update you as we progress on the feature and when we have a release date. Thank you so much for your patience.
Send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions!
Tell your friends and colleagues to upvote this. Once they reach 1000 they will get on it. The issue is proxy buffering and web sockets. They really need to step up their game. Our solution was a company starting with Eri. And they com fine behind the proxy. Also a helping of guacamole is good except it doesn’t work behind the proxy. Anyways good luck everyone.

This would be really useful for us, we are using RDWeb HTML 5 to support Working From Home during this CoronaVirus Pandemic.

Is there any update on when this will be released?
We really need this to help with work from home during the Coronavirus pandemic.
They're not putting this on priority probably because they're pushing their own Virtual Desktop solution hard right now.
I have to agree with Dave, this needs to be moved up in priority and implemented with urgency at this stage.
It's unbelievable that its been on the list for 2 years with no updates or progress.

Just short of two years and still nothing. This would have been a godsend at the moment but instead we are scuttling around trying to get people connecting using IE with multiple logins. How in the world have you not got this into production by now?

Hello, please provide an ETA
Any news on this feature being introduced?
Is there already a date until when the azure application proxy will be supported??
We are looking forward to deploy our applications with rds 2019
It would be great to get this feature working on browsers other than IE.
Can we get an update on the roadmap? We love the CA feature enforcing MFA, but can't use it for this purpose due to the IE limitation.
We really need this feature. Please give us an update on the implementation timeline.
This would make such a difference if we could do this!
FYI the reason it doesn't work (I think):
Excessive buffering.. I had the same issue trying to make Apache Guacamole work over app proxy. Found the following in their guide. Unfortunately no such option exist in Azure App Proxy.
Do not forget to specify "proxy_buffering off".
Most proxies, including Nginx, will buffer all data sent over the connection, waiting until the connection is closed before sending that data to the client. As Guacamole's HTTP tunnel relies on streaming data to the client over an open connection, excessive buffering will effectively block Guacamole connections, rendering Guacamole useless.
If the option "proxy_buffering off" is not specified, Guacamole may not work.
Any update on this? Please Microsoft! Sys admins need this feature to make this work!!

Yes, this feature would be really helpful and simplify to publish remote apps. Please give us a short update when we could expect with a deployment.
Seriously! When is this feature coming out? Just add controls for buffering. I tried setting up Apache Guacamole through app proxy as well with no luck because the app proxy doesn't have any options to limit buffering.
+1 for MFA and Azure proxy APP.
It's already a longtime without news, any update ?
Why isn't this done? It's so important.
