Tip #1. Don't sharpen a deba on an Edge Pro.

It can be done but it isn't too easy. The back is done just taking the stone out of the EP and using it flat on the back of the knife (hollow ground). You might even add a slight microbevel.

The front requires the stone to be perfectly parallel to the blade road. If you require a slight convexity (hamaguri grind) this gets pretty complicated on the EP. If you wish to make the heel more obtuse than the tip you need to place the deba at an angle to the table rather than square so that the tip is furthest away (most acute angle) and the heel closest, giving you a uniform transition from an obtuse heel to an acute tip.

For people highly skilled with the EP, this is worth attempting. For the rest, do it freehand.
