Master profiles have to be first enabled under UMS Administration > Global Configuration > UMS Features, see Enabling Master Profiles.


The aim of introducing master profiles is to be able to reproduce the more complex system of rights management for UMS administrators in very large or distributed environments.

Important profile configurations can now be assigned to all registered devices on a priority basis without having to revoke the rights of other administrators to manage other settings or profiles.

Most Important Features of Master Profiles

  • Master profiles are identical to standard profiles in terms of their effects, but are prioritized differently.
  • Master profiles are profiles whose settings override all standard profiles.
  • Master profiles cannot be overwritten by standard profiles.
  • Master profiles have their own section in the IGEL UMS structure tree.
