    Identification property descriptions
    Property Description


    The node name.

    Host name

    The host name. You cannot edit the host name after the creation of the node. The server address must either be in the fully qualified domain name format: or the machine name format: node2.

    Information noteWe recommend that you use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). If you only use the machine name as the host name, the FQDN must be added manually to the virtual proxy Host allow list.
    Information noteThere is support for using an IPv6 address as host name.

    Node purpose

    Use the drop-down to select which environment the node is intended for: Production, Development, or Both.

    This setting is defined in the QMC on each node that is added. Depending on what node purpose you choose, different properties are applied to the node. These properties can then be used by load balancing rules and security rules for controlling access.

    The effects of choosing the different options are as follows:

    • Production: this server is intended to support users to access apps but not create them. This means that when a user connects to this node, the Create new app button in the hub is not displayed to the user. To hide the Work section in the hub, you need to disable the security rule that grants the application owner access. This means that when a user connects to this node, the buttons in the hub to create apps and the Work section are not displayed to the user. You cannot edit an app on a production node.
    • Development: this server is intended to allow users to create apps but not serve the normal user traffic for users consuming published apps. Create and edit capabilities are enabled.
    • Both: this setting allows both activities to occur on the node. This means that both normal user traffic is handled and users can create apps.

    Services activation

    Select which services to include. If a service is not installed when trying to activate, the properties will be applied when the installation is complete.
