Deploy the Browser Addin with Server URL

Hey Everyone,

we want to deploy the Bitwarden Browser Plugin for Firefox allong our Firefox ESR Installation via our Software Deployment. However it would be optimal to have the Server URL be preconfigured to our own Server. I could figure out how to do this for the Desktop Application. But for the love of god, I can´t figure out how to do this for the browser extension.

I also couldn´t find anything in the Documentation or in the forum/github. Has someone here already done this and can help me out?

Is this what you are looking for?

Log out of the extension and click the settings/gear :gear: icon on the top left

Then enter the details

Hey Vachan,

i know how to do this manually. However I don´t really want to do this on a few hundred potential Computers. Which is why i need to configure this before I deploy the Addin via our Software Deployment Tool.

Ok. Got it.
I don’t think thats possible. You may have to modify the source code. I am not sure.

You should get in touch with the Bitwarden team at . They may have a solution.

Hi bokkabonga,

did you find a solution?
Could not find any answer for this yet myself.

I watched my system with procmon while configuring it manually, but it only reported a log file that is written in %localappdata%\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Local Extension Settings\jbkfoedolllekgbhcbcoahefnbanhhlh\000003.log

inside you find a json syntax:

I think “base”: can be somehow part of the manifest.json?

Can you find your URL in the registry of a PC where it is installed? If so you could deploy the same with Microsoft Endpoint Manager, SCCM, or global policy.

Hi all,

I was wondering if there was a feature that can auto-fill the server’s URL in the extension’s setting. (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Brave, …)
I’ve searched and found nothing about it. Plus, I didn’t want to post this in Feature Request cause it could already exist as a native feature for web browsers.

If anyone has an advice to avoid saying the user to go there and there put that next …
You are welcome ! :slight_smile:

If the URL in the login item is valid, you should see a “launch” button next to it that will take you to the page and then autofill (if enabled) the creds.

Hope this helps! :+1:

Hi tgreer,

I thank you first for your time and answer. But actually, that’s not really what I wanted to know :stuck_out_tongue:

I have bitwarden on prem, and when I installed the extension in a web browser like chrome, I had to configure the URL of my local BW server. like “https:///” (I do use a DNS to avoid static IP)

Is there a way to work around this setting ? Like an auto-configuration/auto-fill of this URL

Thanks again ! :slight_smile:
