Deploying a configuration profile

Follow

The deployment, or distribution of a configuration profile is a process which applies the configuration settings, defined in the configuration profile, to the devices which are selected as targets in the deployment.

In order to deploy a configuration profile, there must be at least one configuration profile in the Miradore Online environment, and device(s) where the configuration profile can be deployed to. If your Miradore Online environment doesn't meet these requirements, you can find instructions for enrolling devices and creating configuration profiles from these help pages:

How to create a configuration profile

The configuration profile deployment can be done in three ways: 1) from the Configuration profiles view, or 2) from the Devices view, or 3) from the Device page. These methods are described in this page.

A configuration profile can be deployed to multiple devices at once through the Configuration profiles view and Devices view. The process of deploying a configuration profile to multiple devices at once is also known as configuration profile mass-deployment.

 

How to deploy a configuration profile from the Configuration profiles view

1. The Configuration profiles view shows all the configuration profiles that have been created and are stored in your Miradore Online environment.

 

2. In the view, the Platform column shows the applicable device platform for each configuration profile. Notice that configuration profiles are platform-specific. Therefore you can only mass-deploy a configuration profile to devices which run on the same platform.

 

3. Once you have selected the desired configuration profile, click Deploy configuration profile from the Actions menu on the right. That will open a deployment wizard, which lets you choose the target devices.

 

4. In the deployment wizard, use the scroll down menu to browse the devices, and use the check boxes to select the devices where you wish to deploy the configuration profile. Once you have selected the devices, click Next to proceed in the wizard.

 

5. In the next screen of the deployment wizard, you are asked to confirm the deployment. Make sure the information is correct, and approve the deployment by clicking Deploy.

 

6. In the last screen of the deployment wizard, you'll see a notification which tells you whether the deployment was successfully added to the deployment queue or not. You may exit the deployment wizard by clicking Close.

 

How to deploy a configuration profile from the Devices view

1. The Devices view shows all devices which are managed in your Miradore Online environment. 

 

2. In the Devices view, the Software version column displays the operating system version of the devices. That is important because configuration profiles are platform-specific, and the configuration profiles can be only mass-deployed to devices which run on the same platform (Android / iOS). Pay attention to the Software version, and use the check boxes to select the device(s) where you wish to deploy a configuration profile. 

 

3. Once you have selected the desired devices, click Deploy configuration profile from the Actions menu on the right-hand side. After that, a configuration profile deployment wizard will open on top of the window.

 

4. In the wizard, select the configuration profile which you want to deploy, and click Next. Notice that the wizard only shows such profiles which are applicable to the selected devices. You can use the scroll bar to browse the profiles.

 

5. In the next screen of the deployment wizard, you are asked to confirm the deployment. Make sure the information is correct, and approve the deployment by clicking Deploy.

 

6. In the last screen of the deployment wizard, you'll see a notification which tells you whether the deployment was successfully added to the deployment queue or not. You may exit the deployment wizard by clicking Close.

 

How to deploy a configuration profile from the Device page

The simplest way to deploy a configuration profile to a single device is to navigate to the Device page of that particular device, and use the provided wizard. The entire deployment process is explained in detail below.

1. Navigate to Devices view through the Navigation menu. In the view, search for the device where you want to deploy a configuration profile, and open the device's Device page by clicking on the  arrow icon on the right-most end of the row.

 

2. On the Device page, start the deployment wizard by clicking Deploy configuration profile from the Actions menu.

 

3. In the wizard, you are first asked to select the configuration profile that should be deployed to the device. The wizard only shows the configuration profiles which are applicable to the device based on it's platform. Select the desired configuration profile and click Next to continue.

 

4. The next screen in the wizard presents information regarding the planned deployment. Make sure the information is correct, and confirm the deployment by hitting Deploy.

 

5. The last screen of the wizard shows whether the configuration profile deployment was started successfully. If the deployment was started successfully, you may close the wizard by hitting Close. Otherwise, re-try the profile deployment.
