  3. Start the Chrome browser and click the Add Extension button. The extension is now installed and activated.

Install from Group Policy

You can also install the UiPath Extension for Chrome by using Group Policies. This method silently installs the extension and enables it, without requiring user confirmation.

Online

This installation method requires that the target machine has access to the Chrome Web Store (https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx and https://clients2.googleusercontent.com/crx).

To install the extension online via policy, perform the following steps:

  1. On the target machine, install the UiPath extension for Chrome with administrator privileges using the following command:
    C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe /chromepolicyglobal.

  2. In the ExtensionInstallForceList policy, add femlfgkoahmpkceibadfboihnjmmldnb;https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx.

  3. In the NativeMessagingAllowList policy, add com.uipath.chromenativemsg_v2.

Offline

This installation method requires that the target machine is joined to a Microsoft Active Directory domain.

To install the extension offline via policy, perform the following steps:

  1. On the target machine, install the UiPath extension for Chrome with administrator privileges using the following command:
    C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\SetupExtensions.exe /chrome-policy-offline.
    This step will create a manifest file called extension_manifest_chrome.xml. You can find it in C:\ProgramData\UiPath\UiPath.Common\<UiPath Studio version>\. If not, you can find it in C:\Program Files\UiPath\Studio\UiPath\.
    Copy the correct path for the next step.

  2. In the ExtensionInstallForceList policy, add panimgephjhgjkfloepibbdmodkigmhk;<path to the extension manifest>.
