Setup profile


Setup edition

The Setup edition supports the one-time configuration of enrolled device and wearable apps and settings. To change a device configuration after initial policies are set, devices must be factory reset and the new policies must be re-applied. The Setup edition includes a select subset of the policies and settings available in the Dynamic edition's normal mode.

Introduction

To date, if a device is configured and its assigned profile is changed, a profile push update is made regardless of the profile's edition (Setup or Dynamic). New rules are now in place to restrict Setup edition profiles from receiving a push update. A Dynamic profile can still push update another Dynamic edition profile, and a Setup edition profile can still push update a Dynamic edition profile. However, a Setup edition profile can no longer update another Setup edition profile, nor can a Dynamic edition profile push update a Setup edition profile.

When an IT administrator pushes an updated configuration, each device utilizing the updated profile receive the configuration update, whether intended or not. With this enhancement, an IT admin can selected individual devices for push updates from the portal’s PROFILES tab or at the time of profile modification. This helps administrators update just those specific devices intended to receive a specific update and exclude those devices that do not need to receive the updates.

This section will guide you through the Configuration tab when creating a profile. 

NOTE — For information on updating and replacing an existing wearable device profile, go to: Updating an existing device profile

Displays

The Displays tab allows you to select a custom watch face, set custom booting and shutdown animations when creating a profile. You can also clear previously set animations on this tab.
