  4. Create the application by either right-clicking the table and selecting New > Application Object or using the icons in the top-right area of the rule set.
  5. Filter the available applications by Name or Category 

  6. Select the applications that you want to add to your application objects and either drag them to the Application Set section or click the plus sign (+) that appears in the Name column.
