Types of events

Profiles can be configured with specific events for them, such as time, location, or application. The policies in these profiles are applied only when the set events are met. If multiple platforms are selected, only the applicable events for the selected platform are shown. For example, the Day & Time event type is shown if Android Legacy and iOS are selected at the same time.

NOTE—You can only add or edit event types for profiles that have Event Profile option set to on during the profile creation process.  To add or edit event types for profiles where the Event Profile option is disabled, you must create a new profile with all the same options and enable the Event Profile option while you create the profile.

Profiles can have six different event types:
