The application represents the protected web application as a whole. By including the virtual host and the agent, it allows PingAccess to match incoming traffic to the application with the agent managing that application. By including a web session, you specify how user credential data is stored and for how long. After you create the application and its root resource, you can add one or more rules to control access to the protected web application.

Within the application, you can add one or more resources. Resources are specific components that require a different degree of security. You can apply different rules to a resource, letting you apply specific controls to portions of an application. This example procedure does not include resources. For information about adding resources to an application, see Configuring resource ordering in PingAccess.

For more information about this procedure, including optional steps that are not included here, see Adding an application.
