Application Shifts

An application can change during a session’s duration. This is known as “application shift”. For example when a flow starts as a request to www.google.com it is recognized as web-browsing, but once the user logs in to Google Mail it changes to gmail.

Dependent Applications

Some App-ID applications depend on other applications. For example facebook-chat is dependent on facebook. If a rule has a dependency that is not met it will be added as an App Dependency tab to the commit.
