Smart Device Settings 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. Smart device profiles are use for both device admin payloads and Android Enterprise payloads.

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 AIDC Mobile Device Settings 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.
