Help with Attached order targets

I'm trying to set up order targets and frankly, a little lost. I'm familiar with the overall idea and other platforms integrations. Sierra (like always :) ) seems to have more options.

I'm trying to create a target which is traded like this...

Qty 2
TP trigger on 1 at 10 ticks

BE on 1 when above take profit on 10 ticks.

SL on 2 at -30 ticks (one gets cleared with the TP and the other moves to BE as above).

I'm going to continue reading the doc for attached orders. Thanks for any help in the meantime.

edit: (i think my main issue is understanding the TYPE selection. While I understand the individual order types (limit, stop, stop limit etc)... the docs for this selection refere to the entire list of order types available and these lists do no match. It's unclear what this drop down is really saying.
I want a TP and SL for both orders, but I want to scale out of 1 and move the other the BE at that time.

edit2: It wasn't obvious at first, I thought the list of attached orders were choices, not all a single action.
I think the following example (though old screen shot) is what I am after. I will fiddle around with this configuration!
Attached Orders: One Target with 2 Stops with Move to BreakEven on Target 1

Actually, you want the one above that, which has 2 targets and a common stop, where the stop is going to move to BreakEven after the first Target is hit:
Attached Orders: 2 Targets and Common Stop with Move to Breakeven on First Target
