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.

Providing this feature would enable proper MFA logon and the other inbuilt Azure / ADFS DoS mitigation across platforms.
The only other alternative solutions I have found (both depend on RDP client):
RD Gateway over App Proxy or ADFS - Must use Internet Explorer and ActiveX
RD Gateway with NPS / Radius extension to provide MFA - Bad user experience and vulnerable to DoS attack
The Remote Web Client appears to look and function identically to WVD and that has MFA.
Any time table on this feature?
+1 HTML 5 for all devices without ActiveX is really a needed functionality!
Any idea when this will be available ?

Just adding another message of support for this change. I have two customers running RDS2016 via Azure AD App Proxy, clients for both are forced into using IE11 due to the ActiveX component which is not ideal. Moving these clients to the HTML5 version via the Azure AD Proxy would increase adoption of the platforms significantly. Eagerly awaiting this!

One more vote here to get AAD App Proxy working with the 2019 RDS web client. Any update on the progress?

Hi team, do we have any updates about Support the Web Client (HTML5) with Azure AD Application Proxy?
We're another AzureADP2 customer seeking AAD Application Proxy support for the RemoteDesktop WebClient; we've ~1000-1500 users awaiting such a solution.

So what time scale are we looking for this for support with azure application proxy and the html rd client?
I'm interested in a simple way to provide pre-authenticated RDP access for specific users (including guest users) in Azure AD to shared, standalone VMs sitting outside the internal network. Until Azure AD join is supported on Server, I'm left without an elegant option.
we just want to be able to leverage Azure MFA without having the ridiculous NPS hack/workaround.
AAD app proxy introduces a lot of extra latency into the picture unnecessarily...
We need AAD App Proxy support for RDS RDWeb and RDGW for Modern RDP clients like Win 10 client from the Windows Store too! Not just for the new RDWeb HTML5 client..
Hi Adam, what we are looking for is to allow access to a Remote Desktop Server via the AAD Application Proxy but working in all browsers, not only IE11, also in Edge, Chrome and on MacOS (Safari, Chrome). Right now, for example in Chrome on MacOS, the usage of the proxy results in a download of an .rdp file which has to be opened from MS Remote Desktop client and that process cannot connect to the RDS because proxied secure access is available to the browser but not to the RD Client.
For those of you interested in the feature, can you clarify whether you are looking for this support in WAP or AAD Application Proxy? We will not be making changes to support this in WAP, but will consider it for AAD Application Proxy. If there is interest in having support for AAD Application Proxy, I will open a new item before closing this one (this request seems to be specifically for WAP).
We recommend using AAD Application Proxy and our focus is there - we are not planning new features for WAP. If you have questions or concerns about this, you can reach out to email@example.com.
