User portal overview - manual profile distribution
Automatic and manual profile distribution are the two possible methods of making profiles available to users. When an administrator enables manual profile distribution, users can’t create new devices or download an OpenVPN profile on the user portal.
Users can see the effects of manual profile distribution when signed in to the user portal:
- Sign in to the OpenVPN user portal (https://[your-company-account-name].openvpn.com).
- Access Apps > Download App and follow the instructions to download the OpenVPN Connect app for your operating system.
- Access Apps > Download OVPN Profile. A message instructs the user to ask their administrator to send them an OpenVPN Cloud profile.
- Access Devices. With the manual profile distribution method active, only an administrator can manage user devices. A message instructs the user to ask their administrator to send them an OpenVPN Cloud profile.
