You can view and edit NAE parameters and the parameters for associated devices in the engine's Site Management Portal UI. Access the Site Management Portal UI of the NAE by using the Launcher. See Accessing Site Management Portal UI on an NAE. Figure 1 shows an example of the Site Management Portal UI.

In the Display panel on the right side of the window is a series of tabbed screens. Table 2 and Table 1 describe the information that you can view and edit in each tabbed screen. The navigation panel on the left displays the navigation tree for the BAS network integrations, field devices, field points, and their associated objects that the NAE is monitoring and supervising.
