When you select this option, the connection with Kounta will be verified. If you have not setup Kounta before or the connection is no longer valid, then you may setup the connection by following the "enable your connection" link which will redirect you to the Kounta site to authenticate and verify you wish this data to be made available.
You may be asked to log in to the Kounta if you are not already logged in.
