I was trying to avoid increasing the complexity of the GUI.

It's a fairly unusual use-case, so I took the view that the user would
not mind putting up with a slightly unusual syntax.

The IPv4/6 addr entries are ambiguous.
Do they apply only to devices?
I would hope so, otherwise existing test plans will break.
In which case, the entries need to be renamed.

The field currently supports Hostname or IP address; it is important
that compatibilty is maintained.

So the first entry should be for the Hostname/IP addr.
The entries need to be something like:

Device IPv4
Device IPv6

Although the GUI is roughly the same width, it is more complicated.

I'm not convinced the change makes it easier for the user.
There would be two fields to configure instead of one.

The fields should be enclosed in a box so that it is clear they are related.
For example, as is done for Web Server & Timeouts.

Maybe the "Embedded URLs must match" field should also have a border.

That's OK.
