  4. Click Configure > Edges.
  5. The Edges page displays the existing Profiles.
  6. Click the link to the Edge to be activated or click the View link in the Device column of the Edge.

  8. Click Send Activation Email.

  9. Enter the details like Email address of the recipient, the Site contact, and Subject line. A default Email message is available.

You can select the link to contain either IPv4 address or IPv6 address, or both.
  10. Click Send and the activation Email is sent to the Site contact.

Once the Site contact receives the activation Email, the person can activate the Edge. For more information, see Activate an Edge Device.
