Allow network short names when adding new web application

Open DevOps Test UI.

Click on Application configuration icon. Browser will open to http://localhost:7878/appconfiguration/index.html?backendPort=7878.

Click Add button. Choose "Web".

In the URL field, type - http://<ANetworkShortName>:<APortNumber>

The following message appears: Domain name is incorrect.

In many instances this is a perfectly reasonable URL. If we have invested the time and energy to be certain our short names resolve properly, we should be able to take advantage of that in defining and applications for DevOps Test UI.
