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
    iOS
    ,
    iPadOS
    ,
    macOS
    , and
    Android Enterprise
    devices that use a proxy server for work
    Wi-Fi
    connections, create a proxy 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.

    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%
      .
