FortiClient Cloud Chromebook support 7.0.1

FortiClient Chromebook endpoints can connect to FortiClient Cloud. When using FortiClient Cloud, FortiClient Chromebook endpoints communicate with the FortiClient Cloud proxy and FortiClient Cloud redirects traffic to the correct FortiClient Cloud host.

This change does not affect the end user. The FortiClient Cloud-side configuration is the same as when configuring on-premise EMS for Chromebook management, except the extension policy that you must push out via the Google Admin console to the Chromebooks.

To configure the extension policy for FortiClient Cloud:
  1. In the Google Admin console, go to Devices > Chrome > Apps & extensions > Users & browsers.
  2. Select the extension that you want to push to the Chromebooks.
  3. Configure the policy using the invitation code and serial number from your FortiClient Cloud environment. You can find the invitation code by going to Invitations in the upper right corner of the FortiClient Cloud GUI. You can find the serial number in the License Information widget on the Dashboard:

    {

    "InvitationCode": { "Value": "6LY209RIP8NE6J1JR0FIF97LEVJVBKT2"},

    "SerialNumber": { "Value": "FCTEMS8820002744"}

    }
