In certain situations, you may need to modify a plate read in Security Desk. This may be necessary if you notice that the system has incorrectly captured a plate read, or if the system prompts you to verify a plate read that is unclear (low confidence score).

What you should know

  • Depending on your user privileges, you can modify plate reads that are displayed in tiles. You can edit plate reads in Reads reports, Reads (Multi-region) reports, monitoring tiles, and in alarms triggered by license plate read events.
  • You cannot edit a plate read if the read is protected, a hit, or if the read is from a federated system or an MLPI inventory.
  • When a plate read is edited, if there is a confidence score associated with the plate read, the confidence score is changed to 100%.
  • The details of the plate read edit appear in the Activity trails report.
  • If you are editing plate reads in an AutoVu™ Free-Flow system, see Editing license plate reads in a parking zone.


  1. From the license plate read tile, click Modify ().
    NOTE: If you are trying to modify a plate read in a Reads report, you must first double-click the read to display it in a tile.
  2. In the Edit read window, manually modify the Plate and State information as required.
  3. Click Save.


In Reads reports, the Edited column shows you if the plate read has been edited. For more information on displaying columns, refer to the Reporting task workspace overview.
