Managing Smart Device Profiles

Use a smart device profile to change settings on your smart devices, such as iPads, iPhones, and Android tablets and smart phones. A smart device profile has payloads associated with it, and each payload contains specific settings. (For example, a Wi-Fi payload can contain the SSID and password for a Wi-Fi network.) 

If you want to manage settings for WindowsCE, Windows Mobile, Palm, or DOS devices, use an AIDC mobile device profile. For information about AIDC mobile device profiles, see Managing AIDC Mobile Device Profiles.

Settings in payloads are only sent to devices after the payloads are associated with a profile and the profile is enabled and applied to a folder. When there are multiple profiles applied to a folder that a device is in, the device can receive payloads from all of the applied profiles. However, each device can only receive one restrictions payload and one passcode payload. If there is more than one restrictions or passcode payload applied, the device will use the payload with the highest priority.

When a payload is removed from a profile, the settings associated with the payload are deleted from the device. For example, if you use a profile to send a file to a device, then remove the payload from the profile, the device does not retain the file.

To create a smart device profile from the Profiles tab:

1.Click New Profile in the Available Profiles panel.
The New Profile dialog box appears.

2.Click Device settings and contents under Smart Devices.
The Smart Device Profile dialog box appears.

3.Type a name for the profile in the Name text box.

4.To add payloads to the profile, enable the check box or radio button next to the name of the payload.

5.(Optional) To reboot a device upon successful sync, select Reboot device.

6.(Optional) To launch an app installed as part of an associated software payload, select Invoke application.

7.(Optional) To force a device to sync again upon a successful sync, select Resync.

8.Click Save.

The folder selected in the Navigation Tree when you create the profile will be the profile's home folder.
