How to map Site24x7's On-Premise Poller to multiple MSP customer accounts?

How to move Site24x7 On-Premise Poller from one customer account to another?

For an MSP Account in Site24x7, every Customer Account has a unique Device Key. Every On-Premise Poller in a Customer Account is mapped to that unique Device Key and can only be mapped to one account at a time. i.e. it cannot be added at the MSP level and should be associated at customer level only. To move On-Premise Poller from one account to a new account, follow these steps with the Device Key of the account to which the On-Premise Poller has to be moved.
