In this area, you can manage profiles. Profiles are predefined configurations which can be assigned globally to managed thin clients via the Universal Management Suite.

When is it a good idea to use profiles?

You can achieve the following using profiles:

You have the option of creating directories for saving profiles and can add, delete and change the profiles in this part of the structure.

Information on a profile is shown in the content panel.


Anyone who is familiar with the Active Directory structures can compare a profile with a policy. The directories that are grouped and managed via the thin clients correspond to the organizational units in the AD.

The following profile types exist:

ICON Profil

Standard profiles can be assigned to thin clients directly or indirectly via directories. A thin client 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 thin client. See Effectiveness of Settings (Effectiveness of Settings, http://edocs.igel.com/manuals/en/en_prof/index.htm#3761.htm).

If you use Shared Workplace, you have the option of assigning profiles to users. Profiles assigned to users have a higher priority than profiles assigned to thin clients. See Order of Profiles (Shared Workplace).

ICON Templateprofil

Template profiles are profiles where one or more settings are set via variables. These values are determined dynamically. Standard and master profiles can thus be used and combined even more flexibly. See the Template Profiles (Template Profiles, http://edocs.igel.com/manuals/de/de_prof/index.htm#4888.htm) chapter.

ICON Masterprofil

Master profiles can overwrite the settings of standard profiles and have their own authorizations. The order of effectiveness is exactly the opposite of what it is for the standard profiles. See Order of Effectiveness of Master Profiles.
