Create Chrome OS device profiles to ensure proper usage of devices, and device functionality. Profiles serve many different purposes; from letting you enforce rules and procedures to tailoring and preparing Chrome OS devices for how they will be used with AirWatch.
The individual settings you configure, such as those for restrictions and bookmarks, are referred to as payloads. In most cases, AirWatch recommends that you only configure one payload per profile, which means you will have multiple profiles for the different settings you want to push to devices. For example, you can create a profile to restrict users from saving passwords and another to block certain websites.
Some device profiles configure the settings for accessing an Chrome OS device. Use these profiles to ensure that access to a device is limited only to authorized users.
Some examples of device access profiles include:
- Specify browser restrictions by using a Restrictions profile. For more information, see Create Chrome OS Restrictions Profile.
Ensure that your Chrome OS devices remain secure through device profiles. These profiles configure the native Chrome OS security features or configure corporate security settings on a device through AirWatch.
Ensure data security by forcing all personal and corporate data to be filtered through the Global HTTP proxy. For more information, see Configure Global HTTP Proxy Profile.
Configure the various settings of your Chrome OS devices with the configuration profiles. These profiles configure the device settings to meet your business needs.
- Access URLs directly from the homepage. For more information, see Deploy Bookmarks Profile.
