Step 5. Select Download Chromebook Config. 

Step 6. Open the config file in Notepad to edit choices for Setup of Chromebook Devices.


Choices within the Configuration/JSON:

"licenseKey"  Senso license key used to connect the client, will automatically be entered here in the Downloaded File.

"siteId": Site ID created when editing Site to auto-join Chromebooks into specific Sites.

"perDeviceLicense":  This will only work with Managed Devices: If set to true, Senso will license the Chromebook by device rather than per user. If set to False, Senso will license by user rather than Device. 

"useAssetId": This will only work with Managed Devices: If set to true, Senso will identify the Chromebook in the Portal by Asset ID,rather than by the serial number. 

"disableTabCapture" : stops the Tab from being captured in thumbnail view.  If set, a DENIED screen would appear in thumbnail view and to see devices remotely a user would need to go into tabbed view to send a screen share request to that user. You must set the other options for "prompting for desktop" to True (required) and "prompt in remote only" to True (optional) as if you leave it at False and view all in thumbnail view, then all devices with this setting will get prompted to share screen, if set to True, only the individual devices opened in Tabbed view will get the prompt request. 

Best if only used for staff, teachers and admin Chromebooks for needed privacy reasons to not view thumbnails and only view screens when in tabbed view. 

 *This setting is NOT recommended for student devices as it will also disable keyword violation captures until the student has accepted the share screen. If set, any violations captured while the device has not accepted the share, will show users that have access to view the Logging area of the Senso admin portal, a denied image in the violation logs.*

"screenSettings": "promptForDesktop" : Prompt the user to consent to sharing their entire desktop. If set to false then only the current tab will be displayed for the device. 


No Active Tab will display in Thumbnail view if the user navigates to another Tab or closes the browser to view the desktop.

"promptCount": Number of times to prompt the user to share their desktop. If it is Set to -1 it will continuously prompt until the End user accepts the share.

"lockWhilePrompting": Will lock the screen until the End user accepts the remote desktop viewing prompt. User will continually be prompted every 5 seconds.

This is an option to not have the Thumbnail view prompt show for student users until a teacher or admin selects their individual device and goes into tabbed or full screen view; then the student will be prompted to share.  The active tab they are in will be displayed in thumbnail view, if no active tab is present (I.E Chrome is closed or minimized) the screen No Active Tab will appear in the portal in thumbnail view.
