Chrom GPO ManagedBookmarks

I am currently having an issue with the chrome GPO ManagedBookmarks. I have tried doing this through the Group policy and through a GP Registry file. Chrome shows that there is a managedbookmarks policy if i go to chrome://policy.

The json is showing as empty when it is not.

I have tried the example JSON from here.

Got any ideas.

Are you been able to see the bookmarks?

Since for Managed Bookmarks for Chrome you don't need the JSON file, rather registry setting which should be JSON Compliant. Which it should have JSON lists and JSON objects/dictionaries.

To validate the JSON string entered in registry you could use

I have managed to solve it. I originally had the Managed Bookmarks setup with the expanded JSON in the registry. The values were set to auto remove when no longer needed but that failed. Created a registry policy to remove the values and now the GPO is working.
