You must create a Server SSL profile on a BIG-IP® system and have access to an MaaS360 system.
An endpoint management system on BIG-IP® Access Policy Manager®(APM) is an object that stores information about the device management server, such as IP addresses and API credentials. You can configure more than one endpoint management system on the same BIG-IP system. APM® polls devices connected to configured endpoint management systems.
