Extension Authentication Configuration

Automatically Prompting for User Authentication

If you are using SAML/SSO, see the instructions at Setting Up SAML/SSO.

By default, on installation, the PixieBrix browser extension prompts the team member to link the extension to a PixieBrix account. However, if the team member closes the extension, PixieBrix will not prompt them to link the extension again.

In Chrome's chrome://policy/ screen, if you have the PixieBrix browser extension installed, you’ll see the policy value you've provided under the PixieBrix section. For example:
