System templates

The System Templates menu allows you to create and manage device profiles. A system template is a subset of a model device configuration. Each device or device group will be able to be linked with a system template. When linked, the selected settings will come from the template, not from the Device Manager database.

By default, there is one generic profile defined. System templates are managed in a similar manner to policy packages. You can use the context menus to create new device profiles. You can configure settings in the widget or import settings from a specific device.

Go to the Device Manager tab, then select Provisioning Templates > System Templates > default in the tree menu to configure system templates.
