What data gets exported?

The downloaded file is in JSON format. It includes the following information for each managed Chrome Browser in your organization, including details such as:

  • The OS platform, OS version, machine name, and last user to sign in to the device.
  • The browser version, number of policies applied, number of extensions installed, and associated profiles.
  • The extensions and plugins installed, including their name, version, and permissions required.
  • The policies applied, including their names, values, source, and errors, if applicable.

Troubleshooting

To open the link to the downloaded information, only the admin who generated the export can be signed in to the Admin console. To see if other admins are signed in, at the top right of the Admin console, click your profile image. If needed, sign out of all accounts, sign back in, and try again.
