Create a 
Wi-Fi
 profile

The required profile settings vary for each device type and depend on the 
Wi-Fi
 security type and authentication protocol that you select.
  • If devices use certificate-based authentication for work 
    Wi-Fi
     connections, create a CA certificate profile and assign it to user accounts, user groups, or device groups. To send client certificates to devices, create a SCEP, shared certificate, or user credential profile to associate with the 
    Wi-Fi
     profile.
    Samsung KNOX Workspace
     devices don’t support using certificates sent to devices by 
    BlackBerry UEM
     for Wi-Fi authentication. Users must set up certificate-based authentication manually on 
    Samsung KNOX Workspace
     devices.
  • For 
    BlackBerry 10
    iOS
    macOS
    ,  
    Android Enterprise
    , and 
    Samsung KNOX
     devices that use a proxy server for work 
    Wi-Fi
     connections, create a proxy profile to associate with the 
    Wi-Fi
     profile.
  • If 
    BlackBerry 10
     devices use a VPN for work 
    Wi-Fi
     connections, create a VPN profile to associate with the 
    Wi-Fi
     profile.

     field, type the network name of a 
    Wi-Fi
     network.
  6. If the 
    Wi-Fi
     network does not broadcast the SSID, select the 
    Hidden network
     check box.
  7. Optionally, clear the check box for any device type that you do not want to configure the profile for.
  8. Perform the following actions:
    1. Click the tab for a device type.
    2. Configure the appropriate values for each profile setting to match the

       configuration in your organization's environment. If your organization requires that users provide a username and password to connect to the 
      Wi-Fi
       network and the profile is for multiple users, in the 
      Username
       field, type 
      %UserName%
      .
