URGENT NOTIFICATION RELATED TO USE OF CHROME AND EDGE BROWSERS AS PART OF BLUE PRISM AUTOMATIONS

  • 1.  URGENT NOTIFICATION RELATED TO USE OF CHROME AND EDGE BROWSERS AS PART OF BLUE PRISM AUTOMATIONS

    Posted 05-03-2022 10:53

    Google (Chrome) and Microsoft (Edge) have announced that they are changing the way third-party browser extensions are supported. On January 1, 2023, any browser extension that uses their Manifest V2 (MV2) standard will no longer operate.   

     

    In response to this announcement, Blue Prism has created a new browser extension that supports Manifest V3 (MV3).  

      

    Customers who currently use either of these browsers as part of their automations must upgrade to a version of Blue Prism software that offers MV3 support by the end of 2022 and test their automations as part of that upgrade process. 

     

    In addition, customers should be aware that with MV3, Google (and Microsoft) have removed the capability to perform JavaScript invocation or injection. Customers who utilize that capability must modify their automations to overcome the vendor-imposed restrictions. 

     

    To help our community of users identify if they are impacted by this announcement - our product team has provided a utility that will determine if you are affected by this issue. We recommend that you run this utility, which can be found here https://digitalexchange.blueprism.com/dx/entry/3439/solution/manifest-v3-impact-assessment-utility

     

    If the utility identifies you are affected (i.e., Using Chrome or Edge / utilizing the JavaScript insert/invoke function) please make sure your organization completes the survey sent to them by their account or customer success manager.

    Note: this survey is intended for end-users of Blue Prism only. If you haven't received this survey and feel that you should have, please contact your Blue Prism representative. Information for Blue Prism partners is available on the Connect Partner Portal.

     

    Our upcoming releases (7.1 and 6.10.5) will contain Browser Extension support for Manifest V3. 

    [Note: these versions will also support those customers who could not apply the January 2022 Microsoft security patch update.

    Our communication regarding this event will evolve in the coming weeks and months. In the meanwhile, please find the latest information in our Knowledge Base FAQs. https://portal.blueprism.com/customer-support/support-center#/path/Alerts/1831250872/URGENT-NOTIFICATION-RELATED-TO-USE-OF-CHROME-AND-EDGE-BROWSERS-AS-PART-OF-BLUE-PRISM-AUTOMATIONS-ACTION-REQUIRED.htm

    Hi,

    I think it would be a little easier for everyone if your update plan was a little more concrete. Your release plan is "May to September" for 6.10.5 -> this is not Q2...
    And Q2 -> according to my calendar we are currently halfway there and there is still no concrete date?

    So what date are we talking about, end of June at the latest or even September?
    -> September would be a disaster for us

    I think all your customers, depending on the "size" of their infrastructure, need an early release to slowly start upgrading or testing.

    Java Script invoke is completely not supported by chrome and Edge browser or it is not supported by Blue prism only? Is there any other way we can invoke JavaScript to the browser?
