How to update links to external web pages for an enterprise environment

Learn how to update links to external web pages for an enterprise environment.

Starting with Windows 8.1, you can extend ApplicationContentUriRules (ACUR) in the enterprise. Because ACUR is part of a signed manifest, prior to Windows 8.1, you couldn’t update it unless you repackaged the associated app. Starting with Windows 8.1, you can use existing management solutions, such as, Windows InTune, System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Group Policy, and Active Directory to dynamically update ACUR for Line of Business (LOB) Windows Store apps using JavaScript like Microsoft Outlook Web app, a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) app, and Microsoft Office Web app.

Prerequisites

Using group policy to set up ACUR

You can use group policy to set up ACUR for your Windows Store app using JavaScript.

  1. Open the group policy editor from an admin console.
  2. Select an existing policy or create a new policy.
  3. Go to Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, or App runtime and set “Turn on dynamic content URI rules for Windows Store apps” to enabled.
  4. Click Show and Add to add any ACURs that are appropriate for the enterprise. For example, enter a value like “https://somecorp.com/*”.
  5. Click OK to close the rules page.
  6. Click OK to save the policy.

Using Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Device Management (DM) to set up ACUR

The setting that turns on dynamic content URI rules for apps is also included as part of the OMA-DM protocol (included with Windows starting with Windows 8.1). Check with your mobile device management provider about how to enable this setting.
