Taking action on extension requests

To take an appropriate action on app requests from end users, you will need to use the Chrome Policy API. Follow the setup guide to get access to the API. Then you will be able to make requests to that API to take various actions. Samples for making app related requests can be found here. The following are examples of common actions you can take on an app request.
