How to manage what plugins chrome users run

We use chrome as a RemoteApp in the office, it's the web browser for everyone. Beginning with version 39 or 40, Chrome blocks plugins that it considers to be unsafe. Any user could override this manually, sure, but I am looking for a way to centrally set what plugins are allowed for any user. Since https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/1247383?p=ib_blocked_plugin&rd=1 only has a command line parameter for authorizing ALL plugins, not selected ones, I see no solution that I can deploy centrally.

Do you?

Hello
I have never done it myself but I think it can be accomplished via Group Policy

First, this is a Full list of supported Policies that can be configured to Chrome installation, disable and enable plugins are in
http://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3

Check the two types of templates available, an ADM and an ADMX template that exists for Windows
http://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-templates

Final, take a look at this post, it may help

Fine, thanks. The current adm/admx templates policy do not hold a key for it, at least I cannot find it.
If I parse the text of the admx file, it's there, but the policies in the editor don't show it, there's something broken, I guess.

However, it works of course if we modify
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\EnabledPlugins
[Example: RegSZ 1, Value: Adobe Flash Player]

So that's ok for me. Thanks a lot.
