Hi,

 

I am preparing the deployment of Microsoft Edge (Chromium), I've downloaded the MSI and GPO templates and have started going through them. I've set everything I pretty much need to but have hit a hiccup which I'm hoping for some clarity on. 

 

I wish for all AppData to save to the Roaming profile instead of Local profile for my users. This is doable on Google Chrome by setting the policy named "Enable the creation of roaming copies for Google Chrome profile data" to "Enabled" which then sets the "RoamingProfileSupportEnabled" registry entry to "1". There does not appear to be a policy which sets this functionality for Edge but in the policy named "Disable synchronization of data using Microsoft sync services" it states in the description "Do not enable this policy when the policy 'RoamingProfileSupportEnabled' is enabled." - this proves that the functionality is there in some sense or will eventually be there. I tried to manually enter this registry key in HKCU>Software>Policies>Microsoft>Edge and when you launch Edge it does not load up the application unfortunately but it does create the folder "Edge" and "User Data" inside the Roaming AppData folders. So potentially Edge is just crashing because of this key. If I remove the registry key or set it to "0" then Edge works again but the data is still stored to Local AppData.

 

Is functionality supposed to be enabled in v79 or v80 (beta)? Or is this something for future development? This is the only thing causing me to not roll this out for our users currently.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Mike

the bad: on-prem sync only allows syncing settings and favorites --> check this 

On-premises sync for Active Directory (AD) users | Microsoft Docs

quote "With on-premises sync, Microsoft Edge saves an Active Directory user's favorites and settings to a file that can be moved between different computers"

MS has yet no other plans to enable the other sync settings for on-prem customers

 

the good: MS will check if they will make the reset informations clearer for on-prem sync or even hide it because this reset will not reset anything.

 

thats it. nothing more nothing less - i guess we have to live with that or change the browser :)
