External print servers

Provides configurations of available print servers.

This policy allows you to provide configuration of external print servers to Google Chrome OS devices as JSON file.

The size of the file must not exceed 1MB and must contain an array of records (JSON objects). Each record must contain fields "id", "url" and "display_name" with strings as values. Values of "id" fields must be unique.

The file is downloaded and cached. The cryptographic hash is used to verify the integrity of the download. The file will be re-downloaded whenever the URL or the hash changes.

When this policy is set to correct value, devices will try to query specified print servers for available printers using IPP protocol.

If this policy is unset or set to incorrect value, none of the provided server printers are visible to users.

Currently, the number of print servers is limited to 16. Only the first 16 print servers from the list will be queried.

See https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-enterprise/policies/?policy=ExternalPrintServers for more information about schema and formatting.

Example value:

"url": "https://example.com/printserverpolicy",
"hash": "deadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeafdeadbeefdeadbeef"

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
