Unlike profiles created for typical MDM deployments, profiles for product provisioning have different rules governing editing or deleting.

Update Profiles

When you edit an existing profile, the version number automatically increases. After saving the edits, AirWatch runs a check on all active products to find any that contain the newly edited profile.

If any active products contain the profile, a warning prompt displays listing all active products affected by the edited profile. You can then choose to Activate or Deactivate a product using the profile.

Delete Profiles

AirWatch checks any attempt to delete a profile against the list of active products.

In order to delete a profile, you must detach it from all products.

  1. Select the Profile listed in the Warning prompt.
  2. Select Edit.
  3. Remove the profile from the product.
  4. Select Save.
  5. Repeat the steps above for all products containing the profile.
  6. Once the profile detaches from all products, you may delete the profile.

If a profile is part of an active product, a warning prompt displays listing any product that uses the profile.
