 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.
