Custom profiles show how many more of a specified object can fit in your environment depending on the available capacity and object configuration. In the Custom Profiles workspace, you create a profile for an object and define its metrics configuration.

To create a custom profile, select Content > Custom Profiles in the left pane. Click the plus sign to create new custom profile or the pencil icon to edit a selected profile. You can use an existing profile as a template by cloning it.
