Application naming conventions and uniqueness constraint

Application names have to be unique although I can’t find this documented anywhere. Is that uniqueness constraint global to the entire balenaCloud or only subject to applications that my user can access?

Is there a recommended convention to use when naming applications?

The constraint is for the owner of the application i.e. an owner can only have a single application of the same name. As for naming, application names have to be a minimum of 4 characters long and no more than 30 characters and can only contain alphanumeric characters, separated by hyphens or underscores.

Thanks for the note about this being undocumented. I’ve opened an issue here to track.
