Hi,
 
I came across the following article
 
https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2014/08/18/printing-is-not-important-in-the-vdi-environment-a-comparison-between-citrix-xendesktop-and-vmware-horizon-view-printing/
 
We have a very large deployment of VDI VMware Horizon and we use AutoConnect Location-based Printing for VMware View.
 
We do use XenApp platinum and we are considering to consolidate with Citrix XenDesktop Platinum and consolidate replacing VMware Horizon.


The AutoConnect Location-based Printing for VMware View group policy setting is a name translation table. You use each row in the table to identify a specific printer and define a set of translation rules for that printer. The translation rules determine whether the printer is mapped to the VMware View desktop for a particular client.

When a user connects to a VMware View desktop, View Manager compares the client system to the translation rules associated with each printer in the table. If the client system meets all of the translation rules set for a printer, or if a printer has no associated translation rules, View Manager maps the printer to the VMware View desktop during the user’s session.

With XenDesktop is there a similar feature to accomplish the same or similar functionality?
