This may be a duplicate of Bug 718046.
Also Note, The filter fields in a configuration are not editable after
drift config creation. Thatis by design.
I don't think this is a duplicate of bug 718046. It involves the system settings page, not the drift definition editor.
I am not sure offhand why the unset column is there. The reason for the radio button is because you can have multiple drift server plugins installed. By default we include on the default RHQ drift server plugin, but there is also a MongoDB drift server plugin that I have developed. It you install that plugin, you would see it radio button for it as well. This setting allows you to switch the back end used for storing and managing drift data.
Since this is not a supported feature I am changing both the priority and severity to low.
