Chrome Group Policies

This page describes what needs to be done to configure Group Policies in order to install the UiPath extension for Google Chrome on machines with policies configured to block browser extensions by default.

The list of active policies on your machine can be viewed in Chrome by navigating to chrome://policy.

You can find out more information about Chrome policy management on this page.

Chrome Policies that affect the UiPath Extension for Chrome

ExtensionInstallBlockList

The ExtensionInstallBlockList policy prevents extensions from being installed on the machine. If this policy is present, then you need to whitelist the UiPath Extension by adding it to the ExtensionInstallAllowList policy.

This can be done by adding the value dkgencfabioofgdmhhjljpkbbchbikbh to the ExtensionInstallAllowlist policy.

NativeMessagingBlocklist

The NativeMessagingBlockList policy prevents UiPath NativeMessagingHost from working. If the UiPath NativeMessagingHost is added to this policy, you can enable it to run by adding it to the NativeMessagingAllowList policy.

This can be done by adding the value com.uipath.chromenativemsg_v2 to the NativeMessagingAllowlist policy.

NativeMessagingUserLevelHosts

If the NativeMessagingUserLevelHosts policy is set to false, it prevents the UiPath extension from working correctly in the case it was installed without administrator privileges. To fix this, you can either:

  • Install the UiPath Extension with Administrator Rights (more information can be found here).
  • Set the NativeMessagingUserLevelHosts policy to true.

BlockExternalExtensions

If the BlockExternalExtensions policy is set to true, it prevents the UiPath extension from being installed in any other way except for by policy. To fix this you can either:

  • Install the UiPath Extension by policy (more information can be found here).
  • Set the BlockExternalExtensions policy to false.

ExtensionAllowedTypes

If the ExtensionAllowedTypes policy is set, it prevents the UiPath Extension from being installed. To fix this, you must add the value extension to the ExtensionAllowedTypes policy.
