2 Creating a Configuration Profile

2.1 Profile settings

Caption Description
Name Free choice of name for the configuration profile.
Auto Synchronization If the “Auto Synchronization” checkbox is selected in the profile settings of the configuration profiles, it is no longer necessary to roll out the initial configuration on AV clients manually.
If clients are moved to other groups, the configurations must be pushed manually as before.
Owner Firm, which is to have access to the profile can be selected as the owner.
The assignment of the owner to a company determines who can use this configuration profile. When a configuration profile is created for a reseller (at the top of the group hierarchy), only that reseller has access to that profile. If a profile is created for a customer, this customer and the reseller can access the profile and define recipients for notifications.

Configuration profiles that should not be visible to the end customer must be assigned to the reseller company.
