Edge Chromium extension install for users without internet

Dear Team,

I need your help on this urgently.

Iam trying to deploy the extensions for Edge chromium in my organization where there is some users who will not connect to internet. I want to install extensions for them on edge chromium. Iam using ADMX in GPO.

Users with internet connection are getting the extension while giving extension id in the GPO - "Control which extensions are installed silently" and the extension is getting deployed since they have internet.

Now i want a way to install the extension for the users who dont have internet. I have created the CRX file and kept the file in a network share and still not getting deployed.

Please let me know how can i solve this issue.

@UserSan,
For testing purposes, I suggest you set the Configure extension and user script install sources policy.

Define URLs that can install extensions and themes directly without having to drag and drop the packages to the edge://extensions page.

Each item in this list is an extension-style match pattern (see https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2095039). Users can easily install items from any URL that matches an item in this list. Both the location of the *.crx file and the page where the download is started from (in other words, the referrer) must be allowed by these patterns. Do not host the files at a location that requires authentication.

See whether it helps you to install the extension offline.

Hi Deepak,
Thanks for your reply.

Actually we don't need users to select the extensions. We need to install the selected extensions to be installed forcefully.

There is any way to achieve this.

@UserSan,
I got this information from Control which extensions are installed silently

On Microsoft Windows instances, apps and extensions from outside the Microsoft Edge Add-ons website can only be forced installed if the instance is joined to a Microsoft Active Directory domain, and running Windows 10 Pro.

See whether this is causing the issue.

Hi Deepak,
We are doing this on domain network and machines are Windows 10 Pro & Ent.

What iam doing is, iam creating the CRX file and putting it in a network share (under sysvol folder) and then in GPO iam putting the location as below:
daaakbkflpohmdmnojeedpppdlnnckgn;\\KE-WS-SANU\Users\Sanu Mundathil\Downloads\CRX\2.0.0_0\2.0.0_0.crx
Where, (daaakbkflpohmdmnojeedpppdlnnckgn) is extension id and after ; iam ptting the CRX location. But iam not adding any xml file.

Is this right way ?

maybe this article for Chromium could be applicable?

Hi Team,

I tried both the above suggestions, but not worked.

Basically i need to deploy extensions to users who dont have internet access. Can i store the extension files on a local share and can deploy them ?
