Windows Chrome JSON configuration file location

Postby Hamsterman » Sat Mar 30, 2019 4:23 pm

I am trying to build a JSON configuration file for the settings in ABP.
But it seems I can only find information about where to put in Linux and not Windows.

Could anyone direct me to the right place.

Hi there,

That's because the large scale deployment works a little different with Windows.
If you're looking to deploy a configuration file/settings via Chrome you have two options.

1) You can use the Google Admin Console: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6177447
This is still untested from our side, so we are happy for any feedback shared in the process!

2) You can change configurations via policies:
On Windows instances that are joined to an Active Directory domain, you should be able to configure policies here:
[HKLM\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome\3rdparty\extensions\cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb\policy]

For Chromium the path differs:
[HKLM\Software\Policies\Chromium\3rdparty\extensions\cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb\policy]

You can find more information on how to configure extensions via policy, here: https://www.chromium.org/administrators ... extensions

Cheers,
Jessy

Thanks for the reply

I found that page as well but there are virtual no documentation on how it's done.
I need a reference so I can change all the settings. Right now it seems like a guessing game and I am not winning.
