You assign a request type defined here to a concurrent program using the Concurrent Programs window. Then, when you define a concurrent manager using the Define Concurrent Manager window, you can define the manager to run (Allow) or not run concurrent programs based on their request type.
For example, you could define a request type as "end-of-month reports", assign that request type to several concurrent programs, then define a concurrent manager to only run "end-of-month" requests.
This application name does not prevent you from assigning this request type to concurrent programs associated with other application names.
