Configuration Settings

Configuration settings are chosen on the Configure Profile page. The page enables you to configure the profile’s setting categories.

Applying Configuration Settings: Profile settings cannot be applied on a partial basis. When a profile is applied to a user's Open Mobile client, the user receives all of the settings associated with that profile: for example, all VPN settings, account definitions, and branding options.

Categories displayed on the Configuration page will dynamically change, depending on your choice of operating system and client version. If a category is not shown, it is not available for configuration in the profile.
