Using Profiles

A profile is a container that applies device settings (through configurations) and data or applications (through packages) to your devices. You can create multiple profiles and assign them to different devices or device groups.

Most of your interaction with profiles is completed on the Profiles tab. The tab is divided into two sections. A list of your profiles appears in the main section while the right-most section displays valuable information about the status of your various profiles, such as installation status and the contents of the profile. Additionally, you can also see profile information for individual devices in their Device Information panels.

Note: Profile capabilities differ across platforms. For example, packages are only available on the Android Plus, Linux, Printer, Windows Desktop Classic, Windows Mobile/CE, and Windows Modern (desktop only) platforms. Always ensure you are viewing help specific to your device types.
