White Labeling the Chromebook Extension

What

It was previously possible to customize the user-visible information for the FileWave Inventory Extension. It was possible to customize icons, name and description. This involved:

  1. Download chromebook-whiteboxing.zip and modify the data inside (adding a new icon, description, etc.)
  2. Create a support Ticket titled "Chromebook Custom Extension" and attach your new modified Zip File
  3. Wait till we send back your "whiteboxed" extension then continue to the "How to publish" section below

When/Why

As part of an overhaul of the extension to leverage new APIs and enhancements the ability to publish it with customizations is removed for now. If this returns in a future version then this article will be updated.

How

This customization is not possible in FileWave 15.4+ and this article remains to make customers aware of the change. You would use the inventory extension as outlined in Chromebook Client Pre-Requisites rather than this customized method.

Digging Deeper

This was the actual process to publish in the past.

The ZIP file contained:

data.json

{
"name"``: "<NAME_HERE>"``,
"description"``: "<DESCRIPTION_HERE>"
}

How to publish a "whiteboxed" version of the extensions

Once you get the "whiteboxed" version of your extension, you have to follow some steps to make it available to your organization.

  1. Login/Create an account to Google Developer Dashboard

  2. Click on the "Add New Item" button
