Starting today, you can enable persistent application and Windows settings for your users on AppStream 2.0. With this launch, your users' plugins, toolbar settings, browser favorites, application connection profiles, and other settings will be saved and applied each time they start a streaming session. For example, your users can configure their plugins and toolbars for their CAD/CAM applications, and retain those settings every time they stream their application. Your users' settings are stored in an S3 bucket you control in your AWS account.
To get started, select Stacks from the AppStream 2.0 console. Below the stacks list, choose User Settings, Application Settings Persistence, Edit. In the Application Settings Persistence dialog box, choose Enable Application Settings Persistence. To learn more about persistent application settings, see Enable Application Settings Persistence for Your AppStream 2.0 Users.
You can enable persistent application settings for your users at no additional charge in all AWS Regions where AppStream 2.0 is offered. However, you will be billed for the S3 storage used to store your user’s settings data. To use this feature, the AppStream 2.0 agent software on your image must be dated August 29, 2018 or newer. AppStream 2.0 offers pay-as-you-go pricing. Please see Amazon AppStream 2.0 Pricing for more information, and try our sample applications.
