How to whitelist or blocklist URLs using the Job for Chrome Configuration

When adding Chrome via the Play Store, we have the opportunity to customize the Chrome settings. However, when adding Chrome via an apk, URL, or both, this option is not available.It is possible to configure the apps even if they were not added to the Play Store. When an app is added to the SureMDM App Store, it should offer configuration options.


The purpose of this knowledge article is to provide a guide on how to configure Google Chrome settings, such as allowing or blocking URLs, using a runscript job.
