Thank you, @Dermot Williams and @Dan Morphis.
I refered to the complete list of parameters that appears above.

Finally got it working.

The steps I have done have been:

- Enable debug. (I didn't localize any error inside the log. It continued
not showing all parameters)
- Delete entry of device in GenieACS and reset router.

After that, the device appeared in GenieACS with all options.

It seems that there was a device state that not showed all parameters
(Maybe it was the initial Bootstrap Inform that pointed Dermot). But after
reseting it to default parameters and reconfigure it with the same
configuration there appeared all the parameters in the ACS.

> If you want customize the parameters shown on the device list screen (/devices), edit genieacs-gui/config/index_parameters.yml.
