Create an iOS Configuration Profile

iOS configuration profiles are XML files (.mobileconfig) that provide an easy way to define settings and restrictions for mobile devices. You can use the JAMF Software Server (JSS) to create iOS configuration profiles and specify the mobile devices and users to which the profile should be applied (called “scope”).

This lesson explains how to create a configuration profile that enforces a passcode on mobile devices.
