    It would be very helpful to be able to see which Published Application(s) that a user has launched in their session in the Farm>RD Session Hosts>Sessions tab. Seeing the process exe name isn't enough when there are multiple instances of different versions of an application installed on a server, like QuickBooks for example.

    I'm happy to announce that information about running published resources was added in the Parallels RAS v18.1 release.
    Bot RAS Console and RAS Management Portal for this functionality.
    For more info please refer to:
    https://download.parallels.com/ras/v18/docs/en_US/Parallels-RAS-18-Administrators-Guide/
    https://download.parallels.com/ras/v18/docs/en_US/Parallels-RAS-18-Management-Portal-Guide/46872.htm
    v18.1 binaries are available in MyAccount (https://my.parallels.com/downloads?product=ras) and the Downloads page on parallels.com

    Thank you for this addition, it is very much appreciated and 99% of the way there. I have an observation though. If a user launches 2 or more separate applications with the same exe name, only one shows up in the Resources list. For example, launching Quickbooks 2019 & Quickbooks 2021 only shows whichever one was launched last, presumably because they share the same exe name. Overall, though, great job! It is already very useful

    Also, some applications are opened by a launcher, i.e. Quickbooks. So when the target of a published application is "%ProgramFiles%\Intuit\Quickbooks 2021\QBW32EnterpriseWholesale.exe", it sets Quickbooks parameters and then launches QBW32.exe. This seems to prevent it from showing up in the Resources tab at all. The workaround of "%ProgramFiles%\Intuit\Quickbooks 2021\QBW32.exe" doesn't work because it causes the wrong Quickbooks edition to open. Intuit has some strange designs to their products.
