  • Administrative Templates in template name

Click Create

Choose a name for your Configuration, and click Next

  • Choose User Configuration not Device.
  • Search for Configure favorites
  • Choose Enabled

}, 
{
"url": "https://w365.dk/", 
"name": "W365"

Now wait for the devices to sync, or do a manally sync from the windows settings, the company portal, or from endpoint manager portal. (sometimes it can take some time, so just be patient)

End user experience

BONUS info:

If you often need to change in favorites, or have to make many policys. Then i will recommend using the ChromeManagedBookMarksEditor you can get it on GitHub

it is much easier if you have many Links/ subfolders.

You can either build your JSON from scratch, and click on the Serialize button when you are done, and Copy/paste it into Intune

Or you can import your current JSON config, and work on it

Here i have imported the config from earlier, and made some subfolders, and added the rest of the current MS portals, the output looks like this;

[{"toplevel_name":"W365"},{"name":"Microsoft security portals and admin centers","children":[{"name":"Security portals","children":[{"name":"Microsoft 365 security center","url":"https://security.microsoft.com/"},{"name":"Microsoft Defender Security Center","url":"securitycenter.windows.com"},{"name":"Security Compliance Center","url":"protection.office.com"},{"name":"Azure Defender portal","url":"portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_Azure_Security"},{"name":"Microsoft Defender for Identity portal","url":"portal.atp.azure.com"},{"name":"Cloud App Security portal","url":"portal.cloudappsecurity.com"},{"name":"Microsoft Defender Security Intelligence portal","url":"microsoft.com/wdsi"}]},{"name":"Portals for other workloads","children":[{"name":"Azure portal","url":"portal.azure.com"},{"name":"Microsoft 365 compliance center","url":"compliance.microsoft.com"},{"name":"Microsoft 365 admin center","url":"admin.microsoft.com"},{"name":"Microsoft Intune portal","url":"endpoint.microsoft.com"}]}]},{"name":"W365","url":"https://w365.dk/"},{"name":"Microsoft","url":"https://www.microsoft.com/"}]
