In the Configuration area, you can create and manage profiles. Currently, only managing standard and priority profiles is possible. For more information on profiles, see Profiles in the IGEL UMS.

Menu path: UMS Web App > Configuration

Profiles for IGEL OS 12 and IGEL OS 11 Devices

  • The procedure for creating profiles for IGEL OS 12 and IGEL OS 11 devices is different. If you want to configure, for example, Chromium browser settings for your IGEL OS 12 and IGEL OS 11 devices, you have to create two profiles โ€“ one for OS 12 devices and another for OS 11 devices.
  • Profiles for IGEL OS 12 devices can only be created and changed in the UMS Web App. It is not possible to create/edit them in the UMS Console. 
  • Profiles for IGEL OS 11 devices can be created and edited in the UMS Console and the UMS Web App.
  • The direct assignment of OS 12 profiles to OS 11 devices is not possible, and vice versa. If you assign an OS 12 profile to an OS 11 device indirectly, i.e. via a directory structure, the settings from the OS 12 profile are ignored for the OS 11 device (and vice versa).

Settings activated for the newly created profiles as well as setting changes are displayed in the UMS Web App under Activated Settings not immediately, but after the next reindexing, which is executed, in this case, with a one-day interval.

Priority profiles have to be first enabled in the UMS Console under UMS Administration > Global Configuration > UMS Features, see Priority Profiles in the IGEL UMS. The node Priority Profiles will appear under UMS Web App > Configuration. After that, you can create priority profiles in the same way as the standard profiles, see How to Create and Assign Profiles in the IGEL UMS Web App.

You can structure profiles by creating directories and subdirectories.

1Configuration Tree

Shows all created profile directories and subdirectories. The format (x/y) specifies 1) the number of profiles contained directly in the directory and 2) the total number of profiles in the directory & all subdirectories of this directory.

To create a profile, click . For more information, see How to Create and Assign Profiles in the IGEL UMS Web App.

 To create a profile directory, click .

 To rename a profile directory, click .

 To delete a profile directory, click . Currently, only empty directories can be deleted.

 To move a profile directory to another directory, select the relevant directory and move it per drag & drop to the desired directory or use [Ctrl + X], [Ctrl + V].

 To move the profile to another directory, navigate to the relevant profile in the profile list and move it per drag & drop to the desired directory.

It is currently not possible to copy profiles in the UMS Web App, but you can use the export and import profile function, instead. See Exporting and Importing Profiles in the IGEL UMS Web App

: Profile ID. If several profiles are assigned to a device on an equal basis, the newer profile with the higher profile ID has priority. For more information on prioritization of profiles, see Order of Effectiveness of Profiles and Prioritization of Profiles in the IGEL UMS.
