Browser plugin not availbe to external users if it is managed by IT

In the admin console under Customization I can choose wether IT manages the Okta plugin or not. This is a nice feature as my users do not have rights to install updates and wont give them an error if there is a newer version of the plugin. I would also like my users to be able to install the plug when they access okta from a home computer but if I have th eplugins managed they do not get the option. Is there a way to make this differentiation or at least a link I can give my users to beable to download the plugin to thier personal computer?

Hi Ken
There are links for the plugins under Settings > Downloads. Just remove "-admin", eg, change:
https://YOURORG-admin.okta.com/plugin/download/firefox?performOrgCheck=false
to
https://YOURORG.okta.com/plugin/download/firefox?performOrgCheck=false

That's helpful but still when I have users on a personal computer off network it doesn't ask them to install the plugin, it just says the plugin is needed. It seems like I would have to have a link (bookmark) for every plugin available to them so they can download it manually.

It's not a glamourous solution, but how about creating a bookmark application called "Download Okta Plugin" that is a link to download the plugin?  You could assign this application to external users, or even to everyone.
