Install profiles

To deploy, or push, a Configuration Profile to a device, install the profile on the device.

Device Management for Apple is not supported on devices using macOS 10.13 or earlier. You cannot push configuration profiles to those devices using N-central.

  1. In the left-hand navigation menu, click ConfigurationDevice Management for Apple to view the Dashboard.
  2. Click the Profile Deployment tab.
  3. Select the target device(s) you want to install a profile on:
    Install on one device onlyClick the vertical ellipsis menu for the target device and select Install profiles.
    Install on multiple devices
    • Click the tick boxes to select one or more devices, or use the multi-select drop-down to select all devices.
    • Click Install profiles in the top bar.

    Since the number of profiles you select may span more than the current window, the number of Selected profiles against the number of available profiles is displayed beside the Search field. For example, Selected: 12/24 is displayed if you select 12 out of 24 available profiles.

  4. Click the check boxes to select one or more profiles to install on the target devices, or use the multi-select drop-down to select all profiles.
