Profiles can be assigned to devices directly or indirectly via directories. A device can receive its settings from a number of directly or indirectly assigned profiles. During the assignment process, the profile settings overwrite the settings configured directly on the device.

If you use Shared Workplace, you have the option of assigning profiles to users. Profiles assigned to users have more weight than those assigned to devices. See Order of effectiveness of profiles in Shared Workplace.

The procedure for setting up and configuring profiles is described in Use profiles. This chapter mainly looks at priorities - which profile overrides which one and when.

Order of Effectiveness

The priority of profiles is symbolized by "LEDs" below:

The more red lights, the higher the priority of the profile.
