Within the Teams Admin Center it is now available to create a basic configuration profile with some pre-set defined settings for Teams Phones. The term basic is used here because there is a lot to improve.
To name some you cannot do at this moment:
• Set this profile as a default for all new added devices
• You are not able to view which profile is pushed/loaded on which device, or you have to search the history of the Phone.
• Static PIN is used
Some features that we can now configure in the Configuration Profiles are also available in the for example Yealink Provisoning Service (link)
But for some small organizations or large enterprises these features could be very useful.
However keep in mind that this configuration is pushed one time only. If you later on reconfigure settings you should reapply the profile to push the settings again.
Here it is more convenient to use the Yealink Povisioning services full package or the standalone web configuration.
Create the Profile
To create a new Configuration Profile you have to sign in to the Teams Admin Center:
Go to Devices -> Configuration Profiles
Press Add to create a new profile:
Name your profile and configure the required settings you want to push to the device(s):
When the configuration is created you can assign it to devices via the Assign to Device button:
Or you can go to Device and assign the profile there:
Either way will be sufficient.
To assign it select the correct phone and oress assign Configuration:
Search for the correct profile, select it and press Apply
Within the action Collum it will now show the status of the configuration push:
When the configuration is succesfully applied it will show:
