Create an AirPlay Security Profile

  2. Click Add New from the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Select the AirPlay Security Profile and click Add & Configure.
  4. Give your profile a name such as "AirPlay Security".
  5. Choose which Blueprints to assign the profile to from the assignment dropdown.
  6. Choose an Access Policy option.
    • Allow connections from all devices: This option will allow any nearby device to attempt to use AirPlay with the Apple TV, as long as it's in range.
    • Require devices to be on the same network as Apple TV: This option requires devices to be on the same network as the Apple TV to AirPlay content.
  7. Select a Security Policy option.
    • Require a passcode every time: This option will require the connecting device to enter a passcode that is shown on an enrolled Apple TV at every connection.
    • Require a passcode once per device: Require the connecting device to enter a passcode only at the device's first connection to each enrolled Apple TV. 
    • Specify a password: This option allows you to set a static password to connect to the Apple TV. Note that this password will not be displayed on the Apple TV when an AirPlay connection is initiated.
  8. Click Save.
