Configuring Google Chrome on a Mac for silent authentication
Google Chrome on Mac requires you to whitelist an authentication server to successfully authenticate your users.
To configure Chrome on a Mac for silent authentication and single sign-on
- Log in to your Mac device as an Active Directory user.
- Quit any instances of Chrome, then open the Terminal.
Run the following command in the Terminal.
defaults write com.google.Chrome AuthServerWhitelist <connector hostname>
Connector hostname is the hostname set in Settings > Network > Centrify Connectors.
Tip: If you have more than one connector configured, use a comma to separate the hostnames. For example:
defaults write com.google.Chrome AuthServerWhitelist host1,host2
Your users should now be able to use silent authentication with Chrome on a Mac. If the changes in the previous procedure do not take effect immediately, Quit Google Chrome and then force any remaining Google Chrome related process to quit using the Activity Monitor.
