Profile Resources simplify the provisioning of Wi-Fi, VPN, and Exchange payloads for Workspace ONE UEM powered by AirWatch deployments that support multiple device platforms, such as iOS, Android, and Windows.
Create a profile resource for any of these payloads and define the general settings each device platform receives. You can then optionally configure platform-specific settings that apply only to those devices.
Profile Resources are defined, managed, and deployed separately from device profiles. Deploy profile resources alongside device profiles to provide deep and broad device management for all supported platforms in your deployment.
You do not have to use profile resources to deploy Wi-Fi, VPN, or Exchange settings. If you choose, you can still create separate device profiles for these payloads for each platform. Consider deploying profile resources when you expect the Wi-Fi, VPN, or Exchange settings to be identical or similar across platforms. Then, create additional device profiles as usual to manage functionality further for each platform.
