Protect multiple cloud app instances using Microsoft Cloud App Security

Community Manager

Several organizations use multi instances of the same cloud applications for different business reasons. As a security professional, you need to have visibility into each of these instances and have the option to control each one. We’re happy to announce that Microsoft Cloud App Security can now support and control multiple instances of the cloud apps.


Let’s start with a common scenario: the marketing team and the sales team in an organization use the same CRM cloud application, but with two different instances.

Hi @Eric Starker 

I know this is a quite old blog post but maybe you can help me.

In my environments are 2 Salesforce instances connected:




Now I'm trying to scope different policies to my DEV instance and I have discovered the following:

- All activities collected by the API are detected correct:


- activities from the reverseproxy are detected wrong:



Seems like this is because I have 2 connected app connectors and only 1 CAAC app.

I have tried to add a second Salesforce App in CAAC with my dedicated SF-domain for the instance but it is not possible. Editing or deleting the instance is not possible too.


Do you have any guidance for this? How can I scope session policies to my DEV environment?


Thanks in advance
