Deploy the Extensions

In order for GoGuardian Director to work correctly, you will need to have deployed a pair of GoGuardian extensions to at least one Organizational Unit containing users for your domain. 
This article is intended to show GoGuardian Director users how to re-deploy the GoGuardian Director extensions to their organization’s users after the initial setup process, if necessary.
What you will need:
  • Administrator-level access to your organization’s Google Apps for Education (GAFE) account.
  • Your GoGuardian extension IDs, which you can find here: GoGuardian Deployment.
Deploy the GoGuardian Extensions
