Go to the Applications and select your application.

Go to Devices and click Import Devices button in the upper right.

As Format, select Microchip ATECC608A-TNGLORA Manifest File.

Click Select a file and open your manifest file. If you want to make your device available for claiming by other users, check Set claim authentication code.

Import progress

Your secure elements are now claimed in your application. The secure elements cannot be claimed by anyone else until you delete the devices.

Note that claiming the secure elements only creates devices on the Join Server, but they are not registered on a Network Server or Application Server yet. You first need to register them on a Network Server and Application Server before you can activate the devices.
