In this article, we describe how to create a new configuration profile. If you've not done so already, we recommend reading the about configuration profiles article.
1. Start by navigating to the Mobile management > Configuration profiles view in the Navigation menu.
2. Then click the Create configuration profile from the Actions menu. After that, a wizard for creating the configuration profile should open on top of the window.
3. Select the device platform and press Next. The platform selection determines which device platform the configuration profile is intended to be used for. Configuration profiles are always platform-specific due to technical constraints. More information about the configuration profiles can be found here.
4. Select the configuration profile type and press Next. The choices vary between different device platforms. More information about the configuration profile types can be found here.
5. Define the configuration profile settings which are related to the use of the feature or function. Please notice two things: A) The setting fields may be grouped under multiple tabs in the wizard. B) You can find more information about the meaning of different setting fields by hovering your mouse over the info icons. After you have finished defining the settings, press Next.
6. Enter a descriptive name and optionally a description for the configuration profile and press Create.
After you have successfully created the configuration profile you can start deploying it. In case you need to modify the settings, just navigate to the Configuration profiles view and double-click on the profile.
