Custom Profile Overview

By Josh Spohrer

Kandji allows you to upload and deploy custom configuration profiles to your enrolled Apple devices.

What are configuration profiles?

Custom profiles, ending in a .mobileconfig extension, are listed settings in an XML format and based on Apple's MDM framework. When installed on a device, these profiles change and manage the settings outlined. These changes are preserved until the profiles are removed.
