This opens up an assign nimble configuration popup as shown below.


Here the user must select the nimble that must be attached to the device from the drop-down menu and click on submit, that creates the device with the assigned nimble configuration.

This creates the device with the provided source and redirects to device view page which is shown below.

Before updating the site association, all rules in that site must be cleared off(i.e, deleted), inorder to perform update site association otherwise it shows the user the message that they are not allowed to do so. Also when site association is updated all schedulers' timezone will be updated according to the latest site timezone, and all scheduled alerts will get activated and deactivated wrt new timezone time.

If the user stays for a minimum of 5seconds in this page, the device image is captured and user is notified that device image is updated successfully. The other way is to just click on the option and the device image gets updated. This updated device image is used as a reference while creating alerts in site alerts page.
