Managing Chrome in the Enterprise
As promised, I'm sharing my Presentation.
These points came up as part of chat or the Q&A section:
- If a specific setting is set via both cloud and GPO, the GPO will override the cloud.
- There doesn't appear to be a way to force a policy update from the CMCM console or change the default polciy refresh time.
- Extension IDs are unique to the extension and are assigned by Google when developers submit extensions. They do not change between versions.
Below please find the links and more information from the hidden slides:
Manage Chrome with GPO (ADMX)
- Installing Remote Server Administration Tools on Windows 10 (For Group Policy Management Console)
- Create and Manage a Central Policy Store to keep ADMX/ADML files. Alternatively, can be kept locally on system with Group Policy Management - Console in %WINDIR%\PolicyDefinitions. Your client systems do not need these files.
