Chrome Extension Configuration File? [Google Apps For Work]

Postby TigerC10 » Fri Jun 24, 2016 5:17 pm

Google Apps For Work allows me to force installation of the AdBlock Plus extension for Chrome for all of the users in my domain, but in the settings for doing so there exists an area to upload a configuration file.

I see absolutely NO documentation on the format of that config file, and what that file can configure (like, for example, can it configure a whitelist of domains to allow ads on?). Does anybody know anything about how this is supposed to work?

Thanks to Greiner in the IRC I've learned about the options: https://adblockplus.org/preferences#pre ... nistrators

Now I just need to figure out what file format this thing is expecting.

Yeah, but that suggests that there's a different approach for each OS. That doc says it has to be a registry setting for Windows, and a JSON file for Linux. Another doc suggests that Mac needs an XML (PLIST) file: https://www.chromium.org/administrators ... extensions

I'd be willing to try out the JSON approach, but I prefer not to be taking shots in the dark if someone might have better insight.

The preferences page Greiner indicated to you seems to be that for ABP in firefox.
So, you should ask him (or other dev there in irc) specific questions (indicating also what browser(s), op.system(s) are you using ..etc. other details )
Or contact them to this specific email address (which all the necessary details):
