OTG for Chromebooks Installation Parameters

When installing WebTitan OTG for Chromebooks you need to add two required parameters in the managed configuration. Depending on your needs, there are also a number of other optional parameters you can use.

Required Parameter




The URL and (optional) port number of your WebTitan Cloud instance. You can get the FQDN by opening a command prompt in windows and typing nslookup followed by the IP of your WebTitan Cloud. For example, nslookup

The RPC port is always port 7771 and is automatically added if not included in the RPC_URL parameter. The examples show the accepted formats.


This is the OTG install key used to register an OTG 2 device on WebTitan Cloud. You can get this in your WebTitan Cloud from Settings > Account and noting the OTG Install Key.


Optional Parameter




When OTG for Chromebooks is installed, a virtual location is automatically created for a device on WebTitan Cloud and given a default name. However, you can specify a location name to use with the LOCATION_NAME parameter on install.

A virtual location can either be created on WebTitan Cloud before installation and then the name can be used in this parameter, or, if not already created, the virtual location is created and assigned the name given in this parameter on install.


If you add this parameter to the managed config within an OU, this location is then used for all users in that organization.



If provided, this is the name used when registering a device on WebTitan Cloud during installation, e.g. Training_Dept_Chromebook.

If a DEVICE_NAME is not provided, the installer uses the device type, e.g. Chromebook12345.

If a device name is specified, but already in use in WebTitan Cloud, a randomized number is appended to make the device name unique, e.g. Chromebook#12345123451234.



This is an optional prefix that can be used to help with device identification in WebTitan Cloud. For example, if DEVICE_NAME_PREFIX is specified as 'student' for a group installation, all devices are given the prefix 'student', e.g. student-chromebook12345, student-chromebook67890.
