Profiles are mix of configurations applied to one or more devices. They can contains app restrictions, network policies, configurations or passcode policies.
Admin can creates Group's profiles or dedicated device profiles.
If a Profile is applied to a non-supervised device, it impacts the work profile and the managed apps.
The MDM engine processes all the payloads of different profiles and combines those using different logics:
- Combined: engine calculates all the single params for all the same payload type.
In case of security, privacy or limitation params, will be used the most restrictive behaviour. In case of lists and multiple configurations result combines all the elements merged from all the payloads.
- Exclusive: the device can have a unique configuration for the same payload type.
In case of multiple payloads that applies this logic, will be applied only the first profile and others will return an error.
- Priority: the device can have a unique configuration for the same payload type.
In case of multiple payloads that applies this logic, will be applied only the profile with higher priority (the most specific).
In order of priority the scale is: [edu] Lesson's Profile, [/edu] Device's Profile, Group's Profile, Organization's Profiles.
