The following list describes the features of the Add Service or Edit Service dialogs.

Field or OptionDescription
ServiceDisplays the service type. You can add the following services: Archiver, Broker, Concentrator, Network Decoder, Event Stream Analysis, Incident Management, IPDB Extractor, Log Collector, Log Decoder, Malware Analysis, Reporting Engine, Warehouse Connector, and Workbench.
HostSpecifies the host on which the service resides.
NameSpecifies the name used to identify the service, for example, Broker. An understandable naming convention can make administrative tasks easier. Some administrators find it convenient to use the hostname or IP address (specified in the Host field) for the Name as well.
PortSpecifies the port used to communicate with this service. The default port, based on the selected service type in the Service field, is autofilled here. If you select SSL below, this port becomes an SSL port. If you do not select SSL, it becomes a non-SSL port. You can customize this port by opening a firewall for the port that you add. For information about ports, see "Network Architecture and Ports" in the Deployment Guide.
