The following table describes the fields available for managing applications in the Agents window.
|Name||Yes||Enter a unique alphanumeric name for the agent, up to 64 characters.|
|Description||No||Enter an optional description for the agent and its purpose.|
In the PingAccess Host fields, enter the Hostname and Port of the PingAccess server where the agent should send requests.
The PingAccess Hostname and Port might not be the actual host and port to which that policy server is listening, depending on network routing configuration and network elements such as reverse proxies and load balancers. The PingAccess Host and PingAccess Port are where the agent sends its requests. For example, if you have a cluster of engines behind a load balancer, the PingAccess Host and PingAccess Port values might point to the load balancer, rather than directly to an engine host in order to provide fault tolerance for the agent connectivity.
In the Failover Host fields, enter the Hostname and Port of the PingAccess server where the agent should send requests in the event of a failover from the PingAccess Host.
Additional failover hosts can be added using API. For more information, see the PingAccess API Management Guide.
|Agent Trusted Certificate||Yes||
Specify the Agent Trusted Certificate to export in the agent properties file. The agent uses the selected certificate to communicate with the PingAccess engine using SSL/TLS. PingAccess gathers these certificates from imported certificates. If the appropriate certificate is not available, it needs to be imported into the system.
You must specify the certificate authority (CA) root certificate if the agent listener presents a CA-signed certificate chain.
|Override Request IP Source Configuration||No||
If required, select Yes to Override Request IP Source Configuration and enable additional controls that configure the agent to use different IP source information.
|Override Unknown Resource Configuration||No||If required, select Yes to Override Unknown Resource Configuration to specify how requests for unknown resources are handled. This mode is optional. If not set, the default agent mode will be used. Select a Mode to specify how requests for unknown resources are handled, either Deny or Pass-Through.|
Enter the number for Max Retries before considering a PingAccess server unavailable.
|Failed Retry Timeout||Yes||Enter the number, in seconds, for the Failed Retry Timeout before retrying a failed PingAccess server.|
