Create a configuration profile using an App

There are a range of third-party resources and applications you can use to create Apple configuration profiles. The following Apps are commonly used to create Apple configuration profiles:

App Available on For more information about creating profiles, see
Apple Configurator 2 macOS Create and edit configuration profiles in Apple Configurator 2 from Apple's support website.
Automation Cookbook macOS and Windows The Automation Cookbook in the Success Center.

After you create a configuration profile, you upload it to the Apple Device Management Dashboard. Depending on the payload and selection, profiles may be supported on macOS devices.

You can add multiple payloads to one configuration profile, but when you update one payload in the configuration profile, all other associated payloads are affected. We recommend you create separate profiles based on function, or for frequently and infrequently changed settings.
