About CNAPP Applications

 

An application is a logical grouping of Resources that you create based on certain criteria, such as the service, account, or tags assigned to resources. For example, you could create a Finance Application based on the tags assigned to resources using the key "application name " and value "Finance Application". So all Resources with the above tag and key-value pair would be part of your Finance Application.

Grouping your Resources in an Application allows you to view open incidents by risk score, so you can prioritize critical issues for analysis and remediation, instead of chasing issues against the entire infrastructure. 

Create and manage Resource Applications at  Analytics > Resources > Applications.
