Hi Jesus


If you do not set any signatures and the underlying application is a known application (like oracle) AppID will give preference to the known application.


The solution is to either create signatures so AppID can positively identify the oracle traffic, or use App Override, as described in the articles i mentioned above, to force identification to your custom app
