Group Policies that affect the UiPath Extension for Edge

You can allow the UiPath Extension by adding the value bhchaenngmlcobfechfkikaofjlmejop to the ExtensionInstallAllowList policy.

You can allow the UiPath NativeMessagingHost by adding the value com.uipath.chromenativemsg_v2 to the NativeMessagingAllowList policy.

NativeMessagingUserLevelHosts
