Configure list of force-installed Web Apps

Setting the policy specifies a list of web apps that install silently, without user interaction, and which users can't uninstall or turn off.

Each list item of the policy is an object with a mandatory member:
url (the URL of the web app to install)

and 3 optional members:
- default_launch_container
(for how the web app opens—a new tab is the default)

- create_desktop_shortcut
(True if you want to create Linux and
Microsoft® Windows® desktop shortcuts).

- fallback_app_name
(Starting with Google Chrome version 90,
allows you to override the app name if it is not a
Progressive Web App (PWA), or the app name that is temporarily
installed if it is a PWA but authentication is required before the
installation can be completed.)

See PinnedLauncherApps for pinning apps to the Google Chrome OS shelf.
See for more information about schema and formatting.

"url": "",
"default_launch_container": "window",
"create_desktop_shortcut": true
