    Has anyone successfully managed to onboard Chromebooks with the Aruba Central Onboard app?

    According to the documentation ChromeOS 115 or later is supported, but I cannot install the app on the device. 

    I've set up "Authentication & Policy" connection with Google Workspace, created SSID that use the Cloud Auth server, and connection/authentication works fine with an iPhone.

    Any advice is much appreciated

    Many thanks

    I don't have personal experience (and no access to a ChromeOS 115 or later), but documentation is here.

    And in Play there is a ClearPass Onboard and an Aruba Onboard App.. the last one is the one you need.

    Do you get a specific error that makes the app not to install?

    Thank you for you reply.

    It turns out that only "real" Chromebooks support installation of Android apps, and will not work on my ChromeOS Flex devices.

    Back to the drawing board... :)
