IDE host name
Specify the IP address of the machine, where the IDE is running, by which the remote debug server can be accessible. This host name will be automatically substituted to the command line. By default, localhost is used.
Specify the port number, which will be automatically substituted to the command line. If the default post number (0) is used, then PyCharm substitutes an arbitrary number to the command line at each launch of this debug configuration; if you specify any other value, it will be used permanently.
Use this field to create mappings between the local and remote paths. Clicking the browse button results in opening Edit Path Mappings dialog, where you can add new path mappings, and delete the selected ones.

Allow multiple instances
Allow running multiple instances of this run configuration in parallel.
By default, it is disabled, and when you start this configuration while another instance is still running, PyCharm suggests stopping the running instance and starting another one. This is helpful when a run configuration consumes a lot of resources and there is no good reason to run multiple instances.
Store as project file
Save the file with the run configuration settings to share it with other team members. The default location is .idea/runConfigurations. However, if you do not want to share the .idea directory, you can save the configuration to any other directory within the project.
By default, it is disabled, and PyCharm stores run configuration settings in .idea/workspace.xml.
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.

Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.
Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.
The button is displayed only when you select a temporary configuration. Click this button to save a temporary configuration as permanent.
