Create a gatekeeping profile

After configuring the
BlackBerry Gatekeeping Service
for automatic gatekeeping, you need to create a gatekeeping profile and assign it to user accounts, user groups, or device groups. The gatekeeping profile allows you to select the
Microsoft Exchange
gatekeeping servers or
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
server groups for automatic gatekeeping.
If you are using
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
server groups, select the appropriate server group that has one or more active instances of the
BlackBerry Gatekeeping Service
. Any user that is assigned this gatekeeping profile can use any active instance of the
BlackBerry Gatekeeping Service
in that server group.
