Basic Profile Properties/

What

Every configuration profile has a few required properties, regardless of the profile type.

When/Why

Every time we create a profile we must specify these basic properties before we can save the profile.  At minimum, we must set a profile name and add at least one payload (configuration) to the profile.

How

The three most common elements to set (or change from the default value) are highlighted below:

In order, those elements are:

  • Name: Must be unique, should be descriptive, and can not be left blank
  • Security: Specifies when this profile can be removed by the user
  • Installation scope: Defines whether the profile installs for the system, or for the user of the device

The highlighted warning above is reminding us that we have to add at least one payload to the profile before we can save it.
