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 that the FortiClient Web Filter extensions send.

FortiClient EMS is the profile server.

To configure the FortiClient Web Filter extension:
  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 Devices > Chrome management > User & browser settings.
  4. On the left, select the organization that contains the desired users or enrolled browsers. To select all users and browsers, select the top-level organization. Otherwise, select a child.
  5. Under Apps and Extensions, click the apps & extensions page link.

  6. Click a domain or organizational unit (OU).
  7. In the right pane, under Policy for extensions, paste the JSON content from step 2.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Go to Devices > Chrome management > Apps & extensions to view your configured Chrome apps.
