Velocity Host Profile Configuration Payload (Android)

A TE Host Profile Configuration payload sends a host profile to the Velocity Client installed on a Smart device. The payload can be applied to folders that contain both Android and iOS devices, but some options are not supported on both platforms.

A Velocity host profile configuration payload has the following options:

ClosedHost Settings

ClosedServer Settings


ClosedAutoLaunch Session

ClosedWeb Insert List

Use a host profile to add elements to HTML pages when you don't have access to the pages on the web host. Create the HTML in a text file, then select the position it should be inserted on the page and the files to add it to. The following options are available when you insert a text file:


A description of the element to be inserted.

Position to insert the text into the web page

Where in the existing page the text should be inserted. Options include the beginning of the <head> element, the end of the <head> element, the beginning of the <body> element, or the end of the <body> element.

URL Fragment

Part of the target pages' URL that must be matched in order for the text to be inserted.

Search Text

Text on the target pages that must be matched in order for the text to be inserted.

ClosedConfiguration Settings

The settings in this tab are for configuring per-host options. They are only applied when the Client is using the host profile. These options will override any options set either through the settings on the device or in a Velocity Configuration Settings payload. For information about the configuration settings available, see Velocity Client Settings Payload (Android).

To create a Velocity host profile payload

1.From the Profiles tab, click New Payload in the Available Payloads panel.

2.The Payload dialog box appears. Select the iOS and Android option and then click Velocity Host Profile Configuration.

3.The host profile options appear. Options are organized by the tabs on the left. Configure the payload and click Save.

To apply the settings on devices, add the payload to an Application Configuration profile and apply the profile to a folder. Once you have performed a deployment, licensed devices assigned to that folder receive the settings the next time they check in. If a device is unlicensed, print the QR code associated with the folder and scan it with the device to configure the Client. For information on printing the QR code associated with a folder, see Configuring Software on Unenrolled Smart Devices.
