You can edit an existing application definition that you have created. An existing and valid application definition might become invalid if one of the user-defined services used originally in the application definition does not exist anymore or has been renamed.


Log in to the vSphere Web Client.


From the inventory menu, select Infrastructure Navigator.

The vRealize Infrastructure Navigator home page appears.


Click the Manage tab.


From the vCenter Server drop-down menu, select the vCenter Server from which you want to edit an application definition.


Select the application definition that you want to edit and click the Edit Automatic Application Definition icon Edit application definition.


To edit the name and description, type a new name and description in the Name and Description text box and click Next.

The name must be unique to the vCenter Server that you are currently working on. The length of the name is limited to 128 alphanumeric characters including spaces. The description is not mandatory, but is helpful as it can increase the efficiency in future tasks. The length of the description must be less than or equal to 2048 alphanumeric characters including spaces.


To add, delete, or change the rules, edit or select the new service category or service name from the Service Category or Service Name drop-down menu.


Click Next.

The Ready to complete screen displays a summary of your new settings.


Click Finish.

The new definition is applied to the application definition.
