Installing and Configuring the Browser Extension for Chrome on Windows (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 Windows.

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 registry file

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\ExtensionInstallForcelist]

"1"="oaienfpdbimabhlgjlbdpocbogaijnam"

You can also download it here.

Note: The Registry Key might need to be modified if multiple Browser Extensions (other than Userlane) are installed to Chrome.

Configuration

Registry keys in the 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\3rdparty\extensions\oaienfpdbimabhlgjlbdpocbogaijnam\policy

path. 

All keys should have type REG_SZ.

Example registry file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\3rdparty\extensions\oaienfpdbimabhlgjlbdpocbogaijnam\policy]
