    A list of App-IDs shows all new App-IDs introduced from the content version installed on the firewall, to the selected
    Content Version
    .
    App-ID details that you can use to assess possible impact to policy enforcement include:
    • Depends on
      —Lists the application signatures that this App-ID relies on to uniquely identify the application. If one of the application signatures listed in the
      Depends On
      field is disabled, the dependent App-ID is also disabled.
    • Previously Identified As
      —Lists the App-IDs that matched to the application before the new App-ID was installed to uniquely identify the application.
    • App-ID Enabled
      —All App-IDs display as enabled when a content release is downloaded, unless you choose to manually disable the App-ID signature before installing the content update (see Disable or Enable App-IDs).
      Multi-vsys firewalls display App-ID status as
      vsys-specific
      . This is because the status is not applied across virtual systems and must be individually enabled or disabled for each virtual system. To view the App-ID status for a specific virtual system, select
      Objects
      Applications
      , select a
      Virtual System
      , and select the App-ID.
