Owntracks http setup on Iphone

I just upgraded to 0.55 HASS. Following the instructions on setting up owntracks on my Iphone and are a little confused.
In the settings on my Iphone I have UserID, Password, Secret encryption key and URL. Does anyone know what goes in each one of those spots?
The confusing one is secret encryption key.

For the encryption key, see here. It’s optional value, just as it is for MQTT, and you can simply not configure it.

For authentication, as detailed in the documentation:

username homeassistant and password is your API password that you use to login to Home Assistant.

The URL is https:// then your Dynamic DNS name (and port if not 443), then /api/owntracks/ followed by the user and device names:

I would set the host to be https://example.duckdns.org/api/owntracks/paulus/pixel. This will result in an entity with an ID of device_tracker.paulus_pixel. You can pick any name for the user and the device.

I did it like this and it works:

Not having much luck regarding the app setup. Couple questions, do I need to forward a specific port? Is the UserID specifically homeassistant and not a current configured user name?
