  4. Do any one of the following:
    • Click Yes to delete the IFA device from the database. However, the changes are not applied to the ingest service.

      • We recommended that you do not delete an IFA device that is currently in use.

      • After you delete an IFA device from the database, you cannot associate that IFA device with another device group even if you have not deployed changes.

      • You can also deploy changes to the ingest service or roll back the changes that you have already deleted, from the PENDING CONFIGURATION page. For more information, see Commit or Roll Back Configuration Changes in Paragon Insights.

    • Select the Deploy changes check box and then click Yes to delete the IFA device from the database, and to apply the changes to the ingest service.

    • (Optional) Click No to cancel this operation.
