I'd like to be able to force install, blacklist, whitelist, and manage extensions via Group Policy.

The manage one is easily overlooked, but managed settings with extensions like uBlock Origin is super useful for us.

@bennettblodinger 

Enterprise features such as Group Policy and Managing Extensions will be addressed closer to launch after more basic features are confirmed as working.

@v-gapart We've successfully deployed the Edge admx files and uBlock Origin installs to Edge as expected. Would like to push out our whitelist for uBlock Origin as well. Duplicating the policy we use for Chrome unfortunately does not work (changing of course the relevant registry key to Microsoft\Edge and using the proper extension ID). So there is a difference in how to set the uBlock Origin whitelist between Edge and Chrome. Is there any documentation on this already?

 

Thanks!
