Merging application definitions is a means of transferring the definition of one application to that of another. To demonstrate this process, we have two different custom applications for Notepad++ shown below.


Ultimately, albeit not always the case, these application definitions should fall into one application both for simplicity and efficiency. This article will demonstrate how to merge two applications together.

How to Merge

First, select the checkbox next to the applications you want to merge into one. In this example, we will be merging the custom applications named Notepad++ together.

Please note that ThreatLocker Built-Ins cannot be merged with other applications.  


Next, select the 'Merge' button at the top of the page.


A dropdown menu will populate where you can select the name of the application definition you want the merged application to be called.  


As mentioned, we will select custom application Notepad++, since we would like all of our definitions to fall under it. We typed the first part of the name into the dropdown menu to quickly search for the name we wanted to use.

Select 'Merge' to finalize the process and combine your application definitions together into one application definition named Notepad++.


A message will appear at the top of the screen informing you that the applications have been added to the queue for merging and that it may take a few minutes to complete.
