As an enterprise user, you can manage all the edges provisioned in a network from the Edges screen. The Edges screen lists all the provisioned edges in a network and also allows you to provision a new edge by clicking the New Edge button on the top right-hand corner of the screen. You can also select an edge from here and perform various actions such as change local credential, delete edge, assign profile, assign software image, assign edge license, update alerts and so on using the Actions drop-down menu.

Most of the column headers have a sorting feature that lists items in the column in alphabetical order, numerical order, or by type. (The Device, Biz Policy, Firewall, Alerts, and Operator Alerts columns do not have this feature). Click the column headers that have this feature to sort the list.
