Third Party Updates


WorkItem:125553 - New File Edit Native Messaging Bridge extension required for use with the Word Integration Assistant


Social Program Management uses a Google Chrome browser extension that enables users to edit Microsoft Word documents through the application. Google is updating its extension platform from Manifest Version 2 (MV2) to Manifest Version 3 (MV3) and the changes will impact all Social Program Management customers that use the Word editing feature in a Chrome-based browser.


Customers must update browsers and roll out the new extension to all clients that use the Word Integration Assistant for editing Word documents in SPM. The Google Chrome MV2 support timeline states that from January 2023, MV2 extensions will no longer run in Chrome.


The following steps need to be completed on each client environment:


  1. Update the user’s browser to Chrome version 104 or Edge version 104 or later.
  2. Install the "SPM File Edit Native Messaging Bridge" extension from the Chrome Web Store.
  3. Update the Cúram Word Integration installer to use the version included with the iFix.


The new version of the Curam Word Integration installer is delivered in this iFix at the following location:


  • CuramCDEJ/lib/curam/installers/IBMCuramWordIntegrationAssistant.msi
