[Ultimate PDF] Browser download directory
Forge component by Leonardo Fernandes
Published on 08 Jan 2021


A few weeks ago I was in a discussion on Html2PDFConverter's forge support page and someone suggested using this extension and I replied that this one works but there was an issue the security team was seeing.

I finally got an answer on what exactly they were concerned about and it is that there is an instance of Chrome being unpacked in a temp directory. I think it would possibly ease their minds if I could control where the extension unpacks the browser so it doesn't set off red flags for them.

Looking at the code, it seems like it wouldn't be too much trouble to do and I thought I'd run this by you before I start writing my own version of this because I really need the functionality to generate PDFs soon as the feature was promised to be in the application I'm writing months ago and this has been the only solution I've found that works.

We are also looking for the same solution as our system operation team is really concerned about keeping it temp folder. We are about to move this plugin in Production server.

In this discussion, It was already discussed and hoping the new changes release immediately.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. The latest release includes a site property that allows you to change which folder will be used to download and unpack the Chromium browser.
