Setting up proxy profiles for devices

You can specify how devices use a proxy server to access web services on the Internet or a work network. For,
iOS
,
iPadOS
,
macOS
, and
Android
devices, you create a proxy profile. For
Windows 10
devices, you add the proxy settings in the

Proxy configuration
iOS
and
iPadOS
Create a proxy profile and associate it with a
Wi-Fi

A proxy profile that is assigned to user accounts, user groups, or device groups is a global proxy for supervised devices only and takes precedence over a proxy profile that is associated with a
Wi-Fi
or VPN profile. Supervised devices use the global proxy settings for all HTTP connections.
