Managing Individual Edges

Update an Edge Details

Clicking on an Edge in the table opens the sidebar, where the Edge details are present. The following can be modified from the MC:

  • Edge Friendly Name
  • Tags
  • Policy Group - Indicates the current Policy Group as well as the option to change Policy Groups (and thus Zone Membership)
Be aware that changing the Policy Group will change the settings on the Edge and may impact the network connection briefly if there was a change in routing settings or the Zone configuration.

Additional Info about the Edge can also be seen.

You will be prompted with the following “Are you sure” modal to confirm you want to reboot the Edge.

Release Edge License

Releasing an Edge’s license is a way to kill an Edge’s ability to talk to the Byos Cloud, effectively making the Edge useless until it’s been factory reset. You will be prompted with the following “Are you sure” modal to confirm you want to release the license.

Once released, you will need to copy the reset token to perform the manual factory reset locally on the Edge.

Manual Factory Reset Token

If this token is not copied and used immediately, it can be found in the sidebar of an previously activated Edge

If the Edge has never been activated previously, there will be no reset token present.
