You add SSH credentials and run the job. It will use the credentials.

Does your ChromeOS have sshd installed? If so, then yes, you can have certain discovery, since the OS is linux based. But you have to check the commlogs to see if all the commands are executed properly.

this totally depends on what you want to discover. Inventory? Installed Software? 

Customers normally start with Host Connection by Shell and configure the Host Application by Shell to their liking.

You need some type of agent there - SNMP, WMI, SSH, NTCMD, UD Agent. A linux version of UD agent may be installed. if not, you can add credentials to SSH and create Host Connection by Shell job using these credentials. 

Check for the documentation how to run a job for discovery.

Hello, 

thanks for the answer with document.
after checking there is no ssh installation on the chromebooks.
I will try with an API query with a google chrome extension.

kind regards

If you cannot install sshd or UD Agent, then using some kind of custom scripts and APis is the only way.
