After you have created and assigned profiles, you will need a way to manage these settings one at a time and remotely from a single source. The Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles provides a centralized way to organize and target profiles.


You can create tailor-made lists of device profiles based on the criteria you specify by using Filters, Layout, and Column Sorting. You can also export these lists to a CSV file suitable for viewing with Excel and see the status of the device profile.

Setting Description

View only the desired profiles by using the following filters.

  • Status – Filter devices to view Active, Inactive, and All devices.
  • Platform – Filter devices by 13 types of platforms or all platforms.
  • Smart Group – Filter devices by selecting a smart group from the drop-down menu.

Enables you to customize the column layout of the listing.

  • Summary – View the List View with the default columns and view settings.
  • Custom – Select only the columns in the List View you want to see. You can also apply selected columns to all administrators at or below the current organization group.
Export Export_Button Save a CSV file (comma-separated values) of the entire List View that can be viewed and analyzed in Excel. If you have a filter applied to the List View, the exported listing reflects the filtered results.
Column Sorting Select the column heading to toggle the sorting of the list.
Profile Details

In both the Summary and Custom views, the Profile Details column, each profile features an icon representing the payload type.

MDM_Profile_List_Icon_singlePayload – Single payload types feature a unique icon for that individual payload type.

MDM_Profile_List_Icon_multiPayloadSameType – Profiles featuring multiple payloads of the same type feature a number badge in the upper-right corner of the icon.

MDM_Profile_List_Icon_multiPayloadDiffType – Profiles featuring multiple payloads of differing types feature a generic icon with a number badge.

Installed Status This column shows the status of a profile installation by displaying three icon indicators, each with a hypertext number link. Selecting this link displays the View Devices page, which is a listing of affected devices in the selected category.
  • Installed ( MDM_Profile_Installed) – This indicator displays the number of devices on which the profile is assigned and successfully installed.
  • Not Installed ( MDM_Profile_Not_Installed) – This indicator displays the number of devices to which the profile is assigned but not installed.
  • Assigned ( MDM_Profile_Assigned) – This indicator displays the total number of assigned profiles whether they are installed or not.
Radio button and Edit Icon

The List View features a selection radio button and Edit icon, each to the left of the profile. Selecting the Edit icon ( MDM_EditIcon) enables you to make basic changes to the profile configuration. Selecting a single radio button causes the Devices button, the XML button, and More Actions button to appear above the listing.

  • Devices – View devices that are available for that profile and whether the profile is installed and if not, see the reason why. Survey which devices are in your fleet and manually push profiles if necessary.
  • </> XML – Display the XML code that AirWatch generates after profile creation. View and save the XML code to reuse or alter outside of the AirWatch Console.
  • More Actions
    • Copy – Make a copy of an existing profile and tweak the configuration of the copy to get started with device profiles.
    • Activate/Deactivate – Toggle between making a device profile active and inactive.
    • Delete – Maintain your roster of profiles by removing unnecessary profiles.
