     This table is also a configuration form. You can use this form to configure (edit), delete, and add Application Classifiers to create a customized default set. The modified default Application Classifiers set and individual Application Classifier settings you configure are automatically applied as the defaults to any branch site included in the Optimization section tree.

Note

You can also customize the Application Classifiers set and settings for each specific branch site. For instructions, see the section Configuring Optimization for a Branch Site.

     2.  To configure an existing Application Classifier, click Edit (pencil icon), in the Edit column of that classifier entry.

          This opens a pop-up Edit settings form for configuring the selected Application Classifier.
