In response to Google's recent changes to the Manifest Version 2 Timelines, we urge Umbrella Chromebook Client (Legacy DNS Client) customers to enable the ExtensionManifestV2Availability policy in your Google Admin Console. This essential update ensures the Umbrella Chromebook Client remains functional until June 2025.
Here's how you can enable this policy:
Log into your Google Admin console.
Navigate to Devices > Chrome > Settings > Users & browser settings.
Locate the policy named Manifest V2 Extension Availability using the 'Filter settings' option.
Select the parent Organizational Unit where you want to enable Force Installed Manifest V2 extensions.
Choose Manifest V2 extension availability. In the 'Default browser behavior' dropdown menu, select 'Enable force-installed Manifest V2 extensions'.
