You can assign application definitions to certain scope of objects, within which applications will be discovered. The scope includes vCenter, Data Center, Cluster compute resource, Host system, Virtual machine and others. For example, if the application definition is assigned to a cluster compute resourced called 'xyz', then the applications would be discovered only within that cluster. The object scope assignments can be made to both service based application definitions and rule based application definitions.
