Device profiles ensure proper use of devices, protection of sensitive data, and workplace functionality. Profiles serve many different purposes, from letting you enforce corporate rules and procedures to tailoring and preparing Glass devices for how they are used.

The individual settings you configure are referred to as payloads. Consider configuring only 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 integrate with your email server and another to connect devices to your workplace Wi-Fi network.

Deploying Profiles with Google Glass

For Google Glass, if you use certificate based Wi-Fi, ensure Screen Lock is setup and enabled prior to enrollment or certificate installation will fail. Screen Lock is a device passcode on Google Glass devices. Steps to set this up are:

  • Recovery code needs to be configured. This is achieved by running the following adb command (in this example, 12345 is the recovery code)
    • $ adb shell am broadcast -a com.google.glass.action.STORE_RECOVERY_CODE --el RECOVERY_CODE 12345
  • Navigate to Settings > Device Options > Screen Lock to configure these options.
