Creating a LocalHost Endpoint

Click the  button to create a new Endpoint, or edit an existing LocalHost Endpoint by clicking on the desired row. Update the required fields as defined in the table below

A localhost endpoint is included with FlexDeploy, and it is very unlikely that you will need to create another localhost endpoint.

Predefined Localhost Endpoint uses variables for BaseDirectory and JDK Home to take advantage of FlexDeploy server's working directory setup and use of same Java respectively.

Localhost endpoint can be useful to run execution on the FlexDeploy server efficiently without any SSH communication.
