The meaning of "Just to get to do"

Hi,
I sometimes meet the non-complete sentence starting with "Just to..".
For example,
"We will then proceed to look into Operator Portal -> System Configuration. Just to get to know how to add in new configuration."

Normally, it is often used in informal English, i think.
Can you clarify on it?

Thank you for your time.

    This is a colloquial way of writing. You can look at it as a single sentence broken into two pieces. With a more conventional punctuation, it would look like this.
    We will then proceed to look into Operator Portal - System Configuration, just to get to know how to add in new configuration.

    "Just to get to know" means:

    simply so that we will come to know

    so:
    We will then look into x, with the simple reason being to come to know how to y.
