This article is about deploying Google Chrome extensions using Group Policy. Find out how to retrieve the extension ID and update URL.

Before you can use a Microsoft Group Policy to manage your Chrome extensions, you first need to import the Chrome ADMX files. I recommend you to read the article Google Chrome on Citrix deep-dive to gain an in-depth understanding of all facets of Google Chrome for both Citrix and traditional environments.

To be able to add an extension to a Group Policy, two values need to be known: the extension ID and the extension’s “update” URL. These two values have to be concatenated into one string, but separated by a semicolon (;). For example:

ndjpnladcallmjemlbaebfadecfhkepb;https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx

This string is than added to the Group Policy setting Configure the list of force-installed apps and extensions. This setting is located here: User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Google\  Google Chrome \ Extensions.
