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.
