Create and manage profiles
Updated over a week ago


A Profile refers to a collection of settings that are utilized to manage a group of user accounts. If you are an administrator, you may need to establish inSync accounts for individuals who work in diverse departments and roles within your company, and these users may have various types of data that require safeguarding across different data sources.

Using a profile can be highly beneficial as it enables you to establish standard backup configuration settings that can be automatically applied to all users who belong to that specific profile. This makes it easier for you to create user accounts in the future, as you can simply assign a profile to ensure that data protection requirements are consistent across multiple users throughout your organization.

Using profiles, you can manage the following properties:
