I do not see the “Administrator secret URL parameter” in the “Configure WAF” ?

yes, we removed that feature in the new beta version.
The reason behind that is that WordPress has a single login page (both for admin and regular site), so it's almost impossible to block all the possible accesses to the administrative area without hurting normal visitors.
There are more effective ways to protect your wp-admin area: Password Protect that folder, change it's name, administrator whitelist etc etc
