Deployment flags allow the RoboForm client to be deployed with certain application settings modified by default. Deployment flags can only be used when RoboForm is installed through the command line or using a mass deployment tool with the RoboForm MSI installer.
When installing through a command line, flags must be initialized with the command EXTCMDLINE followed by the desired flag.
RoboForm-v8-Enterprise.MSI Installer EXTCMDLINE="/lang=de-German"
The above example will install RoboForm with the language set to German by default.
When installing through an automated deployment tool such as GPO, the flag must be applied to the MSI Installer through a transform file. For more information on deploying the MSI Installer using an automated deployment tool, including how to create a transform file, read here.
Modify preset language:
Adding the flag "/lang=" and entering the file name of the desired language will modify the default language of the RoboForm application. Each of the language files can be found in RoboForm’s installation directory, which is C:\Program Files (x86)\Siber Systems\Ai RoboForm by default. For example, "/lang=de-German" will set RoboForm's default language to German.
Modify the User Data folder:
Adding the flag "/home=" will set the file path where RoboForm will store the user's RoboForm data. By default, RoboForm will store the user's data in %localappdata%\RoboForm. A custom variable is available for installation, %rfinst_username% that will act as %username% on each device. For example, "/home=””C:\Users\%rfinst_username%\Documents\RoboForm Data””" will set RoboForm to store the user's data in a folder named RoboForm Data located in that user's Documents folder.
Specify a proxy host:
Adding the flag "/proxy=" will set RoboForm to use a specific proxy host and will store the credentials to be used when connecting to this proxy host. For example, "/proxy=proxy-user:firstname.lastname@example.org:3128" will set RoboForm to connect to a proxy host at IP address 126.96.36.199 through port 3128 using the user name "proxy-user" and the password "1111111".
Set WinInet layer:
"/usewininet=[true | false]"
Adding the flag "/usewininet=" will toggle whether RoboForm uses the WinInet layer for complex proxies. For example "/usewininet=true" will enable the "Use WinInet layer for complex proxies" option for all users.
Set proxy used by Internet Explorer:
"/proxyauto=[true | false]"
Adding the flag "/proxyauto=" will toggle whether RoboForm uses the proxy server used by Internet Explorer. For example, "/proxyauto=true" will enable the "Use Proxy Server used by Internet Explorer" option for all users.
Modify installation path:
Adding the flag "/bin=" will set the file path where RoboForm will install itself. By default RoboForm will install in C;\Program Files (x86)\Siber Systems. For example, "/bin=C:\RoboForm" will install RoboForm in a folder named RoboForm in the C drive.
Using multiple flags:
Any number of flags can be combined and used at the same time. For example, "/home=""C:/BGINFO/1 1"" /usewininet=true /proxy=proxy-user:email@example.com:3128" will modify where the user's data is stored and set RoboForm to make use of a proxy host.
