You can create this profile on the Zebra DataWedge App. Open the top right menu when viewing the Zebra DataWedge App on a Zebra device and create a New DataWedge Profile to get started.

Create a Zebra DataWedge profile with the following configuration to add the DronaHQ Mobile app as an approved DataWedge application.
