We can navigate to the Systems page by clicking on the Systems icon on the left navigation bar.

Clicking on the Systems icon takes us to the Systems page.

After entering the required details, click on Create button to add the System. We will get a success notification stating that the System has been added to the Inventory successfully.

Alternative way to create a System

While creating a regular Execution, it is mandatory to create an Execution Configuration.

If you try to create a Hybrid Execution Configuration without creating a System, we will get a warning stating that Targets machines are not available.

Right below that, a shortcut link will be presented to Create a System.

Click on the Click here to create system link. We will be taken to the Create System page.

Follow the steps in the Create System section above to create the System. After creating the System, restart the Execution creation by going to the Create Execution page.

Refer to article to How to use the system in execution configuration?

Edit System

Clicking on the Edit icon besides the System name in Systems page opens up the Edit System page.

Make necessary changes and click on Update buttton to save the changes.

Delete System

Clicking on the Delete icon besides the System name in Systems page opens up a confirmation dialog.

If the System is already used in one or more Execution Configurations, it will not allow us to delete the System until the dependencies are removed i.e until the Systems are removed from the Execution configurations. Below given is a sample of the error message displayed.
