EMS QuickStart Guide

Configuring the FortiClient Web Filter extension

You must configure the FortiClient Chromebook Web Filter extension to enable the Google Admin console to communicate with FortiClient EMS.

FortiClient EMS hosts the services that assign endpoint profiles of web filtering policies to groups in the Google domain. FortiClient EMS also handles the logs and web access statistics sent from the FortiClient Web Filter extensions.

FortiClient EMS is the profile server.

  1. In FortiClient EMS, locate the server name and port by going to System Settings > Server.
  2. Create a text file that contains the following text:

    {

    "ProfileServerUrl": { "Value": "https://< ProfileServer >:< port for Profile Server >"}

    }

    For example:

    {

    "ProfileServerUrl": { "Value": "https://ems.mydomain.com:8443"}

    }

  3. In the Google Admin console, go to Device management > Chrome Management > App Management > FortiClient Chrome Web Filter Extension > User settings.
  4. Click a domain or organization unit (OU).
  5. In the right pane, under Configure, upload a new configuration file.

    You can also view the current settings.

  6. Click Save.
  7. Go to Device Management > Chrome > App Management to view your configured Chrome apps.
