Installing and Configuring the Browser Extension for Chrome on macOS (SSO)

Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome allow the silent installation of Browser Extensions. This way, the users do not have to manually install the Browser Extension themselves, but rather the IT Admins can roll out the Browser Extension in the background via a MDM solution, such as Microsoft InTune, Enteo NetInstall, or Matrix42 Empirum.

Each browser needs to be set up separately.

This article explains the configuration for Chrome on macOS.

Browser Extensions in Chrome can be installed and configured through Enterprise Policies. Refer to the official documentation of Chrome at https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-enterprise/policies/ for more info.

Installation

Add the Userlane Extension (ID for Chrome: oaienfpdbimabhlgjlbdpocbogaijnam)
to the ExtensionInstallForceList: https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-enterprise/policies/?policy=ExtensionInstallForcelist to install the Userlane Extension from the Google Chrome Store.


Example org.google.Chrome.plist file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

<plist version="1.0">

<dict>

  <key>ExtensionInstallForcelist</key>

  <array>

    <string>oaienfpdbimabhlgjlbdpocbogaijnam</string>

  </array>

</dict>

</plist>


Configuration

Chrome Extensions can be configured the same way they are installed.


Example com.google.Chrome.extensions.oaienfpdbimabhlgjlbdpocbogaijnam.plist file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

<plist version="1.0">

  <dict>

    <key>companyId</key>

    <string>abc</string>

    <key>companyIntegrity</key>

    <string>xyz</string>

    <key>region</key>

    <string>eu|us</string>

  </dict>

</plist>
