Understanding Helperbird Policy Settings

The managed schema for Helperbird includes three key settings that administrators can configure for enterprise environments:

subKey (Subscription Key)

Description: The subKey represents the subscription key associated with your Helperbird Pro account. Type: String. Purpose: Authenticates and activates Helperbird Pro features across the enterprise. Ensures all users within the organization have access to Pro version without individual subscriptions. Usage: Enter the Pro subscription key provided by Helperbird. Applied to all instances of Helperbird across the organization.

isExamMode (Exam Mode)

Description: Enables or disables a mode designed for exam conditions. Type: Boolean (True/False). Purpose: Restricts certain features of Helperbird to comply with exam standards. Ensures students do not access tools/features not permitted during exams. Usage: Set to true to activate exam mode, false to deactivate. Useful in educational institutions during test periods.

isAdminControl (Admin Control)

Description: Indicates whether Helperbird settings are under administrative control. Type: Boolean (True/False). Purpose: Ensures only administrators can alter Helperbird settings, preventing unauthorized changes by end-users. Usage: Set to true for administrative control over settings. Useful for maintaining uniformity and compliance in Helperbird usage within the organization.

These settings are configured in the JSON schema applied to the Helperbird extension through enterprise management consoles or tools.


Windows Policy (Group Policy) Example

In this Windows Group Policy example, replace "Your_Pro_Subscription_Key_Here" with your actual Helperbird Pro subscription key. The isExamMode and isAdminControl are set to true, indicating they are active. Adjust these settings as needed.

      "ExtensionSettings": {
         "ahmapmilbkfamljbpgphfndeemhnajme": {
               "subKey": "Your_Pro_Subscription_Key_Here",
               "isExamMode": true,
               "isAdminControl": true

MacOS Plist Example

  • The "subKey" field should be replaced with your actual Helperbird Pro subscription key.

  • The "isExamMode" and "isAdminControl" are set to true, indicating that these features are enabled. You can set these to false if you want to disable them.

  • This JSON configuration can be used in the Google Admin Console to apply these settings to the Helperbird extension for ChromeOS devices within your organization. Adjust the values as needed for your specific setup.

  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "ahmapmilbkfamljbpgphfndeemhnajme": {
