Q:  How to create a toolbox launcher

A:  Toolbox Launchers must be created from the Admin Console.  The Admin must have at least Resource Provisioning permissions and the Org must be provisioned with the Toolbox App.

As of July 2021, we have added the beta version of Chromium to a toolbox configuration. See Step 3, to enable, however,  please note that Chromium is still in beta and all toolbox functions are not  supported yet. 


1. From the Silo Admin Console, under the Web Apps section, click Manage.

2. Click the Plus (+) sign to expand the Web Apps catalog (wait for a moment while it loads all web apps). Type “toolbox” into the search box and click Toolbox and drag it to the middle panel.

3. Required Step: Chromium Toolbox:  Click the Plus (+) button next to Browser Type. Select the Chromium browser.

4. Required Step: Click the Plus (+) button next to Browser Location and select "All". Optionally, if required for Compliance reasons, choose a Browser Location in a specific region (e.g. Europe or United States). 

Note: Browser location should not be confused with Egress location. If your Browser location defaults to "All" it is recommended to leave it that way.

5. Click the Plus (+) button next to Egress Location then check “Set a custom toolbox traffic egress location.”  From the drop-down options, select your location (Sydney is being used in this example).

6. Click the Plus (+) button next to browser fingerprint and check the “Customize browser fingerprint” box.

 Note:  Please see the support article, Browser Fingerprint Management, for further information.

7. In the top right corner, click the Pencil icon between “Toolbox” and “Settings.”  In the generated text box: Enter a name for the shortcut (Sydney (English) is being used in this example).

IMPORTANT: Please remember to click [Save] to complete the Toolbox provision.
