Yes, it is possible to batch the creation of Generated Clients.
You will need to follow a strict process.
The generation module called ClientGenerator.exe is located in
C:\Program Files (x86)\TSplus\Clients\WindowsClient
The module supports the following parameters:
- server: server ip address, or dns (example: remote.mydomain.com)
- user: user login
- psw: user password

Parameters for the execution of a specific program:
- apppath: path to the executable | launch directory | additional parameters (allows to force the launch of a specific application)
Connection client security settings:
- lock: allows to limit the use of the connection client to a machine name (example: -lock pascal-pc)
- serial: limit the use of the connection client to the serial number of a hard disk
- timelimit: allows to limit the duration of use (in days) of a connection client

Connection client backup settings:
- name: name of the connection client (example: -name client-01.connect)
- location: save path of the .connect file (example: -location c: \ tmp)
If you want to deploy a standardized connection client in its global settings, the easiest would be to generate a connection client, then edit its parameters and copy its parameters into your generation batch.
To do this, once the connection client has been generated,
- go to the RDP6 directory of the user session (c: \ users \ <current session> \ RDP6) and run ConnectionLauncher.exe.
- then select the previously generated .connect file.
- click on 'Edit file'.
- click on 'OK' to close the parameters presentation window.
- the parameters are displayed in the form of a command line that you can script, by adding the parameters for saving the connection client.
Below is an example of a connection client generation script:
cd "C: \ Program Files (x86) \ tsplus \ Clients \ WindowsClient" ClientGenerator.exe -server 188.8.131.52 -user JohnDoe -port 443 -color 16 -encryptionv2 on -printer off -com off -smartcard off -preview on -default off -select off -speed high -disk off -usb off -sound off -dualscreen off -span off -loadbalancing 1 -ploadbalancing 88 -localtb 42 -full 2 -remoteapp off -seamless off -width 1024 -height 768 -smartsizing 0 -name JohnDoe.connect -location D: \ backups \ files_connect
