Open iOS WebClips in Google Chrome

Open iOS WebClips in Google Chrome

Hello there

We have some webapplications which are only working 100% in Google Chrome, we want to use these on a iPad by a web clip.

I've fond the url command "googlechrome://" to start in Chrome, but SOTI tells me that the string is not well formated.

Is there any way to achieve this?

 

Best Regards

Beni

Hi Benjamin,

I'm not from Soti and therefore I don't know when there will be release to support the feature.

 

You can try to modify the following template (especially the value for the keys "URL" and "Label")  to be included in your own iOS Custom Profile :

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
  <key>PayloadContent</key>
  <array>
  <dict>

 

    <key>PayloadDisplayName</key>
    <string>Webclip Using Chrome</string>

 

    <key>PayloadIdentifier</key>
    <string>uds.webclip.using.chrome</string>

 

    <key>PayloadType</key>
    <string>com.apple.webClip.managed</string>

 

    <key>PayloadUUID</key>
    <string>f78c5002-3907-4f67-b631-d41c44283628</string>

 

    <key>PayloadVersion</key>
    <integer>1</integer>

 

    <key>URL</key>
    <string>https://www.udshk.com/</string>

 

    <key>Label</key>
    <string>UDS</string>

 

    <key>TargetApplicationBundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.google.chrome.ios</string>

 

    <key>FullScreen</key>
    <true/>

 

    <key>IsRemovable</key>
    <false/>


  </dict>
  </array>
</dict>
</plist>

Hi Raymond

 

Thank you for your answer.

Is there any reference how to do this in a custom profile?

Are there already any plans when this will be released in MobiControl?

Until Soti MobiControl Web-Console UI includes support for the new webclip parameter "TargetApplicationBundleIdentifier", you have to use MobiControl custom profile to define your required web-clip to browse the target URL using Google chrome.    However, your targeted Apple devices have to be running iOS14+ to support this new webclip feature.
