Managed Kerberos configuration

Hi all,

is there any deployable way to set the Kerberos configuration, e.g. auth-server-whitelist?

Either chromium-style policies like /etc/chromium-browser/policies/managed or default command-line arguments like /etc/chromium-browser/default (both Ubuntu 18.04 paths) would be nice.

Regards,
Thimo

Authentication options of Chromium are described at http://dev.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/http-authentication
For Kerberos, you need the command line option --auth-server-whitelist=.example.com
In Ubuntu, you can add this command line option to the file /etc/chromium-browser/default
About the installation and configuration of a Kerberos server, you can refer to the link: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/kerberos.html

Hi Sharon,

what you write is absolutely true for managing Chromium.
I can also confirm that MS Teams Linux application evaluates the auth-server-whitelist command-line option.

My problem is that the configuration deployment files used by chromium are not evaluated by the MS Teams Linux application.

The question is if there is a similar mechanism implemented in MS Teams since I would like to avoid an intermediate script for injecting the relevant cmd-line options (due to update problems).

Thimo

Hi ThimoE,
I understand your question. It seems that there is no such a similar mechanism implemented in Teams now. You can give your feedback in the Microsoft Teams user voice.
