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.
  1. On the menu bar, click 
    Policies and Profiles
    .
  2. Click 
    Networks and connections > Wi-Fi
    .
  3. Click  .
  4. Type a name and description for the 
    Wi-Fi
     profile. This information is displayed on devices.
  5. In the 
    SSID
     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 
      Wi-Fi
       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%
      .
     For details about each profile setting, see Wi-Fi profile settings.
  9. Repeat step 7 for each device type in your organization.
