  2. Select your account, and then click Edit.
  3. Click  to expand the Network Interface Settings.
  4. Change the Interface Details View from By Device Type to Interface Details.
  5. Click Submit.

III. Manage Views

  1. Click Web Console > Settings > Manage Views.
  2. Select a View, and then click Copy.
  3. Select the new Copy of the view, and then click Edit.
