Configuration Tab

This is the main landing page for the Adapter details view. If your adapter has properties to edit, they will be displayed here in a form. If not, logging can be edited in the Advanced view (if user permission has been granted in the Adapters- updateAdapter permission method) or in the Logging tab.
