Create a profile with custom settings in Intune

Intune may not have all the built-in settings you need or want. Or you may want to use a setting available in other device profiles. To add these settings, create a device profile, and configure the profile with custom device settings.

This article lists the basic steps to create a profile with custom settings. It also includes links to dig deeper into creating custom settings with the different platforms.

Custom settings on different platforms

Custom settings are configured differently for each platform. For example, to control features on Android and Windows devices, you can enter Open Mobile Alliance Uniform Resource Identifier (OMA-URI) values. For Apple devices, you can import a file you created with the Apple Configurator.
