Profiles are the primary means to manage devices in Workspace ONE UEM. Configure profiles so your Windows Rugged devices remain secure and configured to your settings.

Overview

You can think of profiles as the settings and rules that, when combined with compliance policies, help you enforce corporate rules and procedures. They contain the settings, configurations, and restrictions that you want to enforce on devices.

The individual settings you configure, such as the settings for Wi-Fi, VPN, and passcodes, are called payloads. Consider associating only one payload per profile. Create multiple profiles for the different settings you want to establish.

Create a Passcode Profile

Deploy a Passcode payload to require users to protect their devices with passcodes each time they return from an idle state in Workspace ONE UEM. This action ensures that all sensitive corporate information on managed devices remains protected.

Important: Passcode payloads apply only to Windows Rugged devices and not Windows CE devices.
  1. Navigate to Resources > Profiles & Baselines > Profiles > Add and select Add Profile.
  2. Select Windows Rugged.
  3. Configure the profile's General settings.
  4. From the left panel, select the Passcode payload and click the Configure button.
  5. Configure the Passcode settings.
    Setting Description
    Maximum Passcode Age Requires users to renew passcodes at selected intervals.
    Passcode Sets a specific passcode for the device.
    Maximum Passcode Length Sets the maximum number of characters for your passcode.
    Minimum Passcode Length Sets the minimum number of characters for your passcode.
    Minimum Number of Upper Case Letter Sets the minimum number of upper case letters a passcode must contain.
    Minimum Number of Lower Case Letter Sets the minimum number of lower case letters a passcode must contain.
    Minimum Number of Numerical Digits Sets the minimum number of numerical digits a passcode must contain.
    Grace period for device lock Specifies a period of inactivity before locking a device.
    Maximum Number of Failed Attempts Sets a limit on failed passcode attempts before wiping a device.
  6. Select Save & Publish to push the profile to devices.

Create a Restrictions Profile

Deploy a Restrictions payload to restrict the options end users have on devices in Workspace ONE UEM. Restrictions allow you to ensure that your device is secure by controlling what an end user can use to save and store data.

Important: You can use a Restriction payload only on Windows Rugged devices and not on Windows CE devices.
  1. Navigate to Resources > Profiles & Baselines > Profiles > Add and select Add Profile.
  2. Select Windows Rugged.
  3. Configure the profile's General settings.
  4. From the left panel, select the Restrictions payload and click the Configure button.
  5. Configure the Restrictions settings.
    Setting Description
    Allow Camera. Allow access to the camera application.
    Allow External Storage. Allow use of external storage memory.
    Remove Encryption on External Storage. Allow the removal of encryption on external storage.
    Enable On-Device Encryption. Allow encryption on the device.
    Allow Bluetooth. Allow the use of Bluetooth.
  6. Select Save & Publish when you are finished to push the profile to devices.

Dynamic Wi-Fi Profiles

Using custom attributes, you can create dynamic Wi-Fi profiles in Workspace ONE UEM that allow you to configure device Wi-Fi settings across smart groups and OGs without creating multiple profiles. The custom attributes can use device-side values or override device values with a specific value.

This feature works best when managing many different Wi-Fi networks across your mobile fleet. When updating the access credentials for all your Wi-Fi networks, import a batch of custom attributes (using the .csv batch import process). Using the Device Custom Attribute Values template, you can upload specific values to individual devices. This process allows you to update the credentials across your mobile fleet quickly without having to create hundreds of different Wi-Fi profiles.

Dynamic Wi-Fi profiles allow you to specify certain text boxes in the profile as a dynamic value. For example, the Service Set Identifier can be set to a dynamic value so devices can use their own value as opposed to one service set identifier per profile. If you have devices in one OG that use different Wi-Fi credentials, use dynamic Wi-Fi profiles to create one profile that configures the different settings required.

To use a custom attribute in your Wi-Fi Profile, enable the check box next to a text box. Enabling the text box allows you to select the custom attribute, enter a default value, and set the default value to override device values for the attribute.

For more information on custom attributes and instructions for creating them, see Custom Attributes Overview.

Configure a Wi-Fi Profile

Create a Wi-Fi profile in Workspace ONE UEM to connect devices to hidden, encrypted, or password-protected corporate networks. Wi-Fi profiles are useful for end users who need access to multiple networks or for configuring devices to connect automatically to the appropriate wireless network.

Exchange ActiveSync Profiles

The Exchange ActiveSync profiles enable you to configure your Windows Rugged devices in Workspace ONE UEM to access your Exchange ActiveSync server.

Strongly consider only using certificates signed by a trusted third-party certificate authority (CA). Mistakes in your certificates expose your otherwise secure connections to potential man-in-the-middle attacks. Such attacks degrade the confidentiality and integrity of data transmitted between product components, and might allow attackers to intercept or alter data in transit.

The Exchange ActiveSync profile supports the native mail client for Windows Desktop. The configuration changes based on which mail client you use.

Important: You can use an EAS payload only on Windows Mobile devices and not on Windows CE devices.

Credentials Profiles

A Credentials profile allows you to push Root, Intermediate, and Client certificates to support any Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and certificate authentication use case. The profile pushes configured credentials to the proper credentials store on the Windows Rugged device in Workspace ONE UEM.

Even with strong passcodes and other restrictions, your infrastructure remains vulnerable to brute force, dictionary attacks, and employee error. For greater security, you can implement digital certificates to protect corporate assets. To use certificates in this way, you must first configure a Credentials payload with a certificate authority, and then configure your Wi-Fi and VPN payloads. Each of these payloads has settings for associating the certificate authority defined in the Credentials payload.

A Credentials profile pushes certificates to devices for use in authentication. With Workspace ONE UEM, you can configure credentials for intermediate, trusted root, trusted publisher, and trusted people certificate stores.

Create a Custom Attribute Payload

Workspace ONE UEM allows you to create and deploy custom attributes that collect and compare custom-made values from device. Custom attributes are used to manage devices using attributes assigned to or gathered from the devices.

These attributes can be collected or created by third-party applications for use with the UEM console. By using custom attributes, you can ensure that only the devices whose attribute values match the ones you set are selected.

Custom attributes are used by the rules generator of product provisioning to provision products to specific devices. Ensure that your devices are provided the correct values to prevent incorrect products from being provisioned to them. See Custom Attributes Overview for more information.
