Global scope Applications in the global scope are like shared resources that any application developer can modify. Global scope applications do not have a unique namespace identifier included in their application artifact names, but they can have their own application access permissions. Typically, only applications provided by ServiceNow are in the global scope, however all custom applications created before application scope was implemented are also in the global scope. Applications in the global scope are also not eligible for upload to the ServiceNow marketplace. ServiceNow recommends creating all new applications in a private application scope. If you who want existing custom applications to take advantage of application scope, you must move the application from the global scope.
