Casper - Mobile Device Configuration Profiles

You can apply configuration profiles to your devices. Configuration profiles allow you to:

  • Set passcode requirements
  • Set up device restrictions (remove access to app store, disallow usage of safari and other apps, etc.)
  • Configure email - See our email configuration page for settings
  • Many other settings

Information on configuration profiles and what they do is available on the jamf website.

To create a configuration profile in the JSS:

  1. Click on Mobile Devices at the top
  2. Click Configuration Profiles on the left
  3. Click New
  4. Click the desired command
  5. Configure as desired - Be sure to set:
    • Name
    • Category
    • Distribution Method
    • Scope
    • Settings desired for payload
Configuration profiles should be done with great care as they can lock out device functionality needed by your end users. You should apply settings on a test device to ensure they do what you want them to.
