OpenOffice 4.1.x Configuration GPO's?

Postby cpiva@naylor.com » Tue May 07, 2019 5:39 pm

I have an administrator question about managing OpenOffice via GPO.
I see GPO extensions available for LibreOffice and Collabora Office - which as I understand, the products are based on the opensource code for OpenOffice.
Here are a few references I found on GPO management for Libre and Collabora:
https://www.collaboraoffice.com/community-en/new-group-policy-template/
https://getadmx.com/?Category=CollaboraOffice
https://getadmx.com/HKLM/Software/Policies/LibreOffice/org.openoffice.Office.Common

Is there a similar set of GPO settings available for OpenOffice, or can the above mentioned policies be configured to work with OpenOffice?
I've been trying to search for anything that would point me in the right direction, but I have as of yet been able to locate.

Any advice on this is appreciated.

Thanks.
Carlo

Apache Open Office is dead. There is not enough developer support for them to push out updates and it has unpatched security attack vectors. They literally are having trouble running builds of the software because the dependencies AOO relies on aren't even installed on modern computers anymore. Strongly recommend switching to Libreoffice for security and the features you need. It's the Apache Foundation's secret shame they still "support" this project because of politics while consumers struggle. If you need another reason; consider this: It would take AOO 4 years, if they started now, to update their code base to match Libreoffice's. That's how long its been since a major point release for AOO has come out, and that's how dated their codebase is. LO almost completely refactored their code over 2015-2017.
Libreoffice 6.2.2

The best way is to try it by yourself and report here if problem occurs.
Remember that solutions depends of your environment like server and client versions.
