Microsoft Edge Management
Applies to: Configuration Manager (Current Branch)
The all-new Microsoft Edge is ready for business. Starting in Configuration Manager version 1910, you can now deploy Microsoft Edge, version 77 and later to your users. A PowerShell script is used to install the Edge build selected. The script also turns off automatic updates for Edge so they can be managed with Configuration Manager.
Deploy Microsoft Edge
Admins can pick the Beta, Dev, or Stable channel, along with a version of the Microsoft Edge client to deploy. Each release incorporates learnings and improvements from our customers and community.
Prerequisites for deploying
For clients targeted with a Microsoft Edge deployment:
- PowerShell Execution Policy can't be set to Restricted.
- PowerShell is executed to perform the installation.
The device running the Configuration Manager console needs access to the following endpoints:
||Information about releases of Microsoft Edge|
||Content for Microsoft Edge releases|
Create a deployment
Create a Microsoft Edge application using the built-in application experience, which makes Microsoft Edge easier to manage:
In the console, under Software Library, there's a new node called Microsoft Edge Management.
Select Create Microsoft Edge Application from either the ribbon, or by right-clicking on the Microsoft Edge Management node.
On the Application Settings page of the wizard, specify a name, description, and location for the content for the app.
On the Microsoft Edge Settings page, you select a channel and version to deploy. The Learn More link takes you to the Microsoft Edge Insiders page.
On the Deployment page, decide if you want to deploy the application. If you select Yes, you can specify your deployment settings for the application. For more information about deployment settings, see Deploy applications.
In Software Center on the client device, the user can see and install the application.

Update Microsoft Edge
Starting in Configuration Manager version 1910, you'll see a node called All Microsoft Edge updates under Microsoft Edge Management. This node helps you manage updates for all Microsoft Edge channels.
To get updates for Microsoft Edge, ensure you have the Updates classification and the Microsoft Edge product selected for synchronization.
In the Software Library workspace, expand Microsoft Edge Management and click on the All Microsoft Edge Updates node.
If needed, click Synchronize Software Updates in the ribbon to start a synchronization. For more information, see Synchronize software updates.
Manage and deploy Microsoft Edge updates like any other update, such as adding them to your automatic deployment rule. Some of the common updates tasks you can do from the All Microsoft Edge Updates node include:
