  • Paste the following text in that location. For any setting you would like turned off, change “true” to “false”.


       "EnableClassroom": {

        "Value": true


       "classroomOpenWith": {

        "Value": true


       "defaultOpenWebPagePDF": {

        "Value": true


       "brightspaceIntegrationEnabled": {

        "Value": true



  • It should look like this:

  • Then click "SAVE" in the top right of the screen

Note - The Classroom values should both be set to either "true" or "false" in order to toggle the "Open Classroom PDFs Directly" option on/off. 

*Users will still be able to change their options themselves in the extension options menu, but this will push out the default settings to all users in the OU you choose*
