Real User Monitoring data from your web applications can be split into different Applications in Dynatrace.

Those applications are configured via Application Detection Rules: They define which User Actions should match to a given application, based on the URL or DOMAIN used to access the application. There is a catch all called My web application where all User Actions go, that do not match any of the Application Detection Rules.

You can find more information, including good practices, in the documentation.

Patrick is 100% correct. Also, if you don't have any rules or a new application is onboarded with out any rules in place, you can find them under "My Web Application" as this is the default bucket for anything that does not have a home.

From there you can see the site/applications that don't have a home yet and you have the option to create a new Application Definition or link it to an existing one:
