Merge and unmerge applications

Merging two or more applications creates a single application called a primary application and is a common operation for Organization Administrators responsible for bringing applications online. The main purpose of merging is to present a single application view for the purposes of scoring, discovered vulnerabilities, and remediation. Applications can be made up of components, which may show up individually in the application list. Merging also allows you to logically organize all of an application's components into one entity in Contrast.

To merge applications:

  1. Select Applications in the header, and use the check marks to select the applications to merge.

  2. Select the Merge icon from the menu at the bottom of the grid.

  3. In the window that appears, use the drop-down menu to choose one of the merged applications to represent the primary application.

  4. Once your applications are merged, you'll see a crown icon beside the name of the primary application. To see the application components that the primary application contains, select the crown icon.

  5. To unmerge either all or specific application modules from the primary application, select the crown icon in the application's row or Overview page. In the window that appears, select any number of the modules, and click the button to Unmerge selected applications.
