There's no reason you should. You said you had one application, so there's
nothing to override. Virtual hosts do not have to be distinct
applications. It doesn't sound like you have more than one.

Just undo what you originally did and they will all be defaulted.

All of your endpoints need to be in metadata. You apparently omitted some
in whatever process you follow to register your metadata with the IdP(s)
involved. That isn't related to, and won't be fixed by, using application
