When to use custom settings

Custom device settings can be useful when Intune doesn't have the settings you want to configure built-in, and available from other device profiles. Custom settings are configured differently for each platform. For example, with Android and Windows devices, you can specify Open Mobile Alliance Uniform Resource Identifier (OMA-URI) values to control features on devices. For Apple devices, you can import a file you created with the Apple Configurator.

Use the information in this topic to learn the basics about configuring profiles with custom settings, and then read further topics for each platform to learn about device specifics.
