Test button in New Target UI

We need to have a Test button in New Target UI like we have in Park My CLoud. The test button will validate the whole permissions and access needed. This can speed up troubleshooting and avoid frustrations to discover problems only after target registering or in the discover phase.

    Hi Simon. Circling back with this. I think it's not redundant a test button. The Save button of course test all the connection, but it closes without a health check of every requirement. Park My Cloud and CLoudability has this features and other dozens of other vendors. Check in live with test button, make the troubleshooting easier and reduce the load on system, because it's a test, not the actual loading attempt.

    Thanks Ricardo. For some targets the new target UI will show the connection stages to help troubleshoot. The act of adding or saving the target effectively makes a test button redundant. If the target fails after adding or saving, it will remain in the list and you can then view the connection stages to see where it went wrong. We are adding connection stages to more targets in the future.

    I'm marking this as done but please comment here with reasons why a separate test button makes sense.
