New 9.2 Microsoft Edge Flex Config - Issues

Jump to solution

Hey all,

Tried out the new FlexConfig included in 9.2 for Microsoft Edge.  It does seem to capture the settings, but doesn't appear to restore them properly.  Has anyone been successful getting Edge to work with UEM?  For example, if I login to a new VM with an empty UEM profile, and change the homepage in Edge, add some favorites, etc, they don't come back when I logoff and log back in.  I confirmed that the archive is getting restored properly.  I also tried disabling directflex with no luck.

DirectFlex needs to be enabled, otherwise the UM config file for Edge will not work.

The settings need to be imported at application start, and not at logon. If you import them at logon, the settings will be overwritten bij Edge again.

I have configured DirectFlex as the screenshot below and that works for me.

Export will always happen at logoff, because UEM does not see the Edge application close. In order to test you need to logoff first for the export to be succesfull.

I can confirm that this is the solution. I had the same issue. I enabled DirectFlex and it works now.
