Creating Profiles

Create Profiles according to the different task areas such as

  • Network configuration
  • Sessions
  • Printer
  • Monitor configuration


Profile Structure


Tip: The best practice is to define one profile for each task and not to mix them up. Otherwise, you will have problems maintaining your configuration settings later on.


In this case, we created a profile exclusively for the English keyboard layout:

Profile Mousespeed

After creating a profile and adjusting its settings, you can assign it to some Thin clients. You can assign an arbitrary number of profiles to each thin client.

Basically, there are two modes of assignment: direct or indirect.

Indirect means that you assign the profile to a thin client directory rather than to a single thin client. All thin clients within the directory then inherit the settings of this profile.

Select a Profile in the UMS tree and drag and drop the selection onto a thin client or thin client directory.
or

Select a thin client directory in the UMS tree and click the Add (+) button above the Assigned Objects panel.

Assigning a Profile


In the Profile Selection dialog that appears, select the profile to assign and press Ok:

Select Profile


You can also do it the other way round: Select a profile in the UMS tree and assign a thin client directory to it.



For more information on profiles and their assignment to thin clients refer to the IGEL UMS User Guide as well.
