Defining the alias

2.Add configurations: The Configurations pane will have a configuration named Default (see screenshot above). This Default configuration cannot be deleted nor have its name changed. You can enter as many additional configurations for the selected alias as you like. Add a configuration by clicking the Add Configuration or Add Configuration as Copy icons. In the dialog which pops up, enter the configuration name. Click OK. The new configuration will be listed in the Configurations pane. Repeat for as many configurations as you want.
3.Select a folder as the resource of a configuration: Select one of the configurations in the Configurations pane and browse for the folder you wish to create as a global resource. If security credentials are required to access a folder, then specify these in the Username and Password fields.
4.Define multiple configurations if required: Specify a folder resource for each configuration you have created (that is, repeat Step 3 above for the various configurations you have created). You can add a new configuration to the alias definition at any time.
5.Save the alias definition: Click OK in the Global Resource dialog to save the alias and all its configurations as a global resource. The global resource will be listed under Folders in the Manage Global Resources dialog.
