    This field also supports the Global Resource Settings syntax ( =PageName.PropertyName ).
  3. Click Set password, enter a password that is valid for the user name you provided, and then click Submit. The default property for this field is pyPassword.

  5. In the Host Name field, enter the host name of the server to which the request is being sent.
