Configuration Profiles

A profile allows you to manage configurations and settings centrally and then deploy those configurations to as many locations as necessary. Use profiles to update or modify multiple servers or devices instead of manually changing settings for each one. Profiles must be enabled before being applied.

The following list provides information about each type of profile:

Smart device profiles

Smart device settings profile: A smart device profile is a collection of payloads that configure settings on Android devices. There are two types of smart device profiles: device settings profiles and application configuration profiles.

Android Enterprise provisioning profile: Use Android Enterprise provisioning profiles to create provisioning QR codes.

Printer profiles

Printer settings profile: A printer profile is a collection of payloads that configure settings on printer devices.

Application profiles

Application configuration profile: An application configuration profile manages Ivanti Terminal Emulation or Velocity Clients on smart devices.

Windows Mobile / CE / DOS device (AIDC) profiles

AIDC mobile device settings profile: A mobile device profile manages settings on your AIDC mobile devices, as well as adding, changing, and removing custom properties and registry keys.

Network profile: A network profile provides gateway addresses, subnet masks, WWAN settings, and encryption and authentication information to devices on your network.

Scan to Config profile: A Scan to Config profile allows you to print network settings as bar codes; then the settings are applied on the device when they are scanned.

Software profile: A software profile allows you to control where and when software and files are distributed to mobile devices.

System settings profiles

Alert profile: An alert profile allows you to track events on your network and send notifications by email or proxy server.

Mobile device server profile: A mobile device server profile configures how the mobile device servers interact with devices and the Enterprise Server.

Printer device server profile: A printer device server profile configures settings on the printer device server, including HTTPS configurations and device connection intervals.

Smart device server profile: A smart device server profile allows you to configure push notifications, HTTPS configuration, and smart device administration.

Once you assign and deploy a profile, the servers or devices retain their configuration values until you change the profile or assign a new profile with a higher priority. If you alter device configuration values without using Avalanche, when the server queries the device, it restores the configuration values from the assigned profile.
