I originally had a "Remote Access" app in a developer org. I am still using this today to log Cases's via a web form. I wanted to make a few changes and I can't find it via Setup...I have checked the Connected Apps section under Create -> Apps and the alternative under Manager -> Apps with no joy. I have also searched for Remote Access and I can't seem to find it.

I can see it "exists" as the Login History shows the App's access to the Org.

Anyway - can anyone shed some light on where the App can be found?

    Is this local or part of package??

  • Local - no packages/apps installed in this org Commented May 12, 2016 at 14:00
  • Do you have customize application permission on your profile??

  • Thanks and yes :( Is there anyway to find it via SOQL? I plan on using the force.com IDE tomorrow to see if I can find it with that (I couldn't with Octopus) Commented May 12, 2016 at 16:38
  • Yes it is possible.Writing it in answer.

You can try to find it through SOQL as well.It's the ConnectedApplication object.

SOQL would be something like this:

SELECT Id, Name FROM ConnectedApplication

From Comments:

To read connected apps one must have customize application permission.For more information refer this Documentation


Remote Access applications have been replaced by connected apps

So i think my solution is still valid.

  • unfortunately it doesn't display anything - can you advise the SOQL for remoteaccess? I have tried again and the login history still shows the app...just can't find it in the org :( Commented May 12, 2016 at 21:02
  • What do you mean by remoteaccess?? I'm assuming that you are running this query from the developer console in the org which have or had the connected app ??

  • Hi, this is what I mean by remoteaccess: help.salesforce.com/apex/…. That is how it was originally set up, actually using this: developer.salesforce.com/page/… Commented May 13, 2016 at 7:41
  • Thanks for the help - except - my question/problem is basically I can't find the "app"? As remote access is deprecated I can't find it there and it hasn't displayed under Connected Apps...how can I view the app/change the settings etc. I know I could simply create a new one but I want to cover all my bases with this old one first - is it a bug it hasn't become available in connected apps?

  • You have to consider the fact that connected app can be deleted.Apart from permissions i think that could only be the reason.You should try to contact support.Maybe they can help you.
