Install configuration profiles on devices

Device Management for Apple is not supported on devices using macOS 10.12 or earlier. You cannot deploy configuration profiles to those devices using N-central.

  1. In the left-hand navigation menu, click Configuration > Device Management for Apple.

    The Devices tab displays including profile status for each device in the Profiles column.

  2. Select the checkbox for one of more devices, or use the multi-select drop-down to select all devices.
  3. Select Install profiles in the top menu.

    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. Select the checkbox for one or more configuration profile(s) you want to install on the selected devices.

  5. Click Install to deploy the profiles to the selected devices.
  6. Online devices receive the profiles in near real-time. Offline devices receive the profiles the next time they come online.

Although we provide the mechanism to deploy custom profiles through Device Management for Apple, we are not responsible for custom profiles made or used in conjunction with this product. We are not liable for loss incurred from system, hardware or data loss. It is the customer or profiles developer's responsibility to verify the integrity, actions and impact of any custom profiles.
