Specifies a list of apps and extensions that are installed silently,
without user interaction, and which cannot be uninstalled by the
user. All permissions requested by the apps/extensions are granted
implicitly, without user interaction, including any additional
permissions requested by future versions of the app/extension.
Furthermore, permissions are granted for the
enterprise.deviceAttributes and enterprise.platformKeys extension
APIs. (These two APIs are not available to apps/extensions that are
This policy takes precedence over a potentially conflicting
ExtensionsInstallBlacklist policy. If an app or extension that
previously had been force-installed is removed from this list, it is
automatically uninstalled by Google Chrome.
For Windows instances that are not joined to an Active Directory
domain, forced installation is limited to apps and extensions listed
in the Chrome Web Store.
Note that the source code of any extension may be altered by users via
Developer Tools (potentially rendering the extension
dysfunctional). If this is a concern, the DeveloperToolsDisabled
policy should be set.
Each list item of the policy is a string that contains an extension ID
and an "update" URL separated by a semicolon (;). The extension ID is the 32-letter string
found e.g. on chrome://extensions when in
developer mode. The "update" URL should point to an Update Manifest
XML document as described at https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/autoupdate. Note
that the "update" URL set in this policy is only used for the initial
installation; subsequent updates of the extension employ the update
URL indicated in the extension's manifest.
For example, gbchcmhmhahfdphkhkmpfmihenigjmpp;https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx
installs the Chrome
Remote Desktop app from the standard Chrome Web Store "update"
URL. For more information about hosting extensions, see: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/hosting.
If this policy is left not set, no apps or extensions are installed
automatically and the user can uninstall any app or extension in Google Chrome.
