App Discovery - application criteria

Occasional Contributor

Does anyone know if there is documented criteria that defines an application in the context of Cloud App Discovery - i.e. what criteria does the app have to meet to be defined as an app, that in turn means it shows up in the discovered apps list?


An example of why I ask. I tested uploading data to Datto Workspace and within a few hours, Datto Workspace shows up as a new discovered app. I've then setup 'Synology Drive' on my NAS at home, which has a public DNS record, uses TLS and is arguably no different to Datto Workspace in the sense that I can logon and upload data. The difference is, this has not shown up as a discovered app in MCAS. MCAS has no record of the 6GB of test data that I uploaded to the NAS..


Keen for any thoughts/advice.
