This KB will assist you in pushing Google Chrome Extensions to Chrome Browers. Please follow the instructions below:



 

In order to accomplish this, copy the following .plist into a TextEdit file (make sure that it is reading in plain text, not rich text). 

 

**Please note**: Google chrome must already be installed

 

Please substitute the bolded information with the extension identifier for the extension you wish to install, and the name you want it to be called. 

 

Here is the .plist:

In order to get the identifier, go to the extension in the google web store and get it from your URL, it should look like this: 

 

After you've modified this to your specifications, save it as a .mobileconfig as shown below 

 

 

After saving, you'd then navigate to Policies>Catalog>MDM Configurations>Add Configurations>mac OS>Custom configuration select the file you created, and click "Confirm Configuration"

 

 

 

 In order to deploy this, go to the desired policy, then go to MDM configurations, find the configuration you made, and click MDM Configurations --> Add configuration. Within the same policy, you'd navigate to deploy changes, and click confirm all. If you want the changes to take effect immediately, you can select Deploy Now.
