The page is available only when the PHP plugin is enabled. The plugin is activated by default. If the plugin is disabled, enable it on the Plugins page as described in Managing plugins.

On this page, specify the scripts requests to which you want PhpStorm to ignore during debugging. This approach can be useful, when your application contains scripts that use AJAX. Suppose you have a menu-ajax-script.php that "reloads" a part of your web page. This script works properly so you do not need to debug it. However, this script is still requested during the debugging session. To have incoming connections to this script ignored, add the menu-ajax-script.php script to the skipped paths list.
