In order for you to utilise the Saved Passwords functionality of the Wonde Single Sign-On, you will first need to have the Wonde Chrome extension installed on the device you will be using.

To help you make that process less time consuming, we have compiled the guide below to help you deploy our Chrome extension to your devices via Group Policy.

Deploying extensions via Group Policy consists of two parts:

  • Retrieve the extension ID and the update URL of the Chrome extension
  • Enable and configure Chrome extensions in a Group Policy

Retrieve the extension ID and the update URL of the Chrome extension

To be able to add an extension to a Group Policy, two values need to be known: the extension ID and an "update" URL. These two values have to be entered as one string, but separated by a semicolon (;). For example, the concatenated string of the extension ID and update URL for the Wonde extension is as follows:

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

  The URL of the Chrome extension contains the extension's ID and as such, is the best place to retrieve said ID from, you just need to copy the long string of letters. Secondly, the update URL is the same for all extensions, namely: https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx

Configure the Group Policy setting to deploy the Chrome extension

Before you are able to undertake the work in this section you will need to follow the guide on the link below below:

  1. To force-install extensions, open your Group Policy Management console (dsa.msc) and go to User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Google\  Google Chrome \ Extensions. Go to the setting Configure the list of force-installed apps and extensions and enable it.

   2. Click the Show button and enter the string you created earlier:

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

Now the policy setting is configured. On the next Group Policy refresh the user will automatically receive the required extension. To summarise, this policy will automatically install one or more extensions for all users to whom the Group Policy applies. The installation is executed silently and without user interaction.

After the extension has been installed you will find it in the directory C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions.

Please be aware that when you remove the extension from the Configure the list of force-installed apps and extensions policy setting, the extension is automatically removed from Chrome for all users to whom the Group Policy applies.
