Hi,

how to Enable edge://flags/#edge-windows-credentials-for-http-auth type of behavior as that flag seems to be gone in 84.0.495.2 (or some other relative recent build)?

 

Earlier discussion of why it is needed and used here and here.

@Jussi Palo Thanks for reaching out. As I'm sure you know, the flags are all experimental, and can unfortunately come and go while they are in testing. However, I hear that there's a need for this functionality, so I've looped the team in. I'll let you know if they have any insights to share!

@Jussi Palo Great news: after reviewing your feedback, the team realized how important it was for some of our users, and has decided to re-enable this flag! They've created a work item for this, so you should see the flag back in the preview channels in the near future.

 

Hope that helps, and please let us know if you have any other feedback.

Hi Fawkes 

 

This is great news. What would be even better is that if this setting could be managed through a GPO. Do you think this would be possible as it would simplify the roll out of the setting a lot.

 

Best regards Fredrik

@Fredrik_Freden I know our team has looked into creating a GPO, but there are currently some confounding factors. I'll let them know that there is interest in it, though, and let you know if there is a change of plans!

Thank you. I really hope you have a solution for this. I am pretty sure I am not the only one in the enterprise market that uses old third party systems that we have no control over.

 

The most important thing is that the flag is there and that it is possible to fix it even if I have to configure every computer manually but the GPO would really make life easier.

 

Best regards Fredrik

@Fredrik_Freden Thanks for the details, Fredrik. Knowing more about individual and org use cases provides a more complete picture of everyone's needs.
