This procedure shows how to add a new IDS sensor and modules:

1)Click the Device View button in the toolbar.

The Devices page appears.

2)Click the Add button in the Device selector.

The New Device - Choose Method page appears with four options.

3)Choose Add New Device, then click Next.

The New Device - Device Information page appears.

4)Enter the device information in the appropriate fields.

See the Providing Device Information-New Device

5)Click Finish.

The system performs device validation tasks:

If the data is incorrect, the system generates error messages and displays the page on which the error occurs with a red error icon that corresponds to it.

If the data is correct, the device is added to the inventory and it appears in the Device selector.
