  5. Enter the following information:
    • 'Create a link back to this server' – Tick this check box if you want to create a two-way link between the remote application and your application. If you want to do this, you will need to enter the username and password of an administrator for the remote application.
      Note: These credentials are only used to authenticate you to the remote applicaiton, so that Application Links can make the changes required for the new link. The credentials are not saved.
    • 'Reciprocal Link URL' – The URL you give here will override the base URL specified in your remote application's administration console, for the purposes of the application links connection. Application Links will use this URL to access the remote application.

    Enter the information required to configure authentication for your application link:
    • 'The servers have the same set of users' or 'The servers have different sets of users' – Select one of these options depending on how you manage users between the two applications.
    • 'These servers fully trust each other' – Tick this check box if you know that the code in both applications will behave itself at all times and are sure each application will maintain the security of its private key.
      For more information about configuring authentication, see Configuring Authentication for an Application Link.
