Name

E.g. 8080

E.g. /symws4

Status

Not live = Can only be used in debug mode.

Live and not visible = Can only be used in debug mode.

Live & visible = production ready. Users will be able to access this login at the authentication point. If you have only one connection it will become the default login whenever your organisation is known (e.g. for any resources where access involves your entityID).

Changes to the status usually take effect within moments.
