I have a connected app and I would like to know what certificate it is associated with. How does one find out that information?

1 Answer 1


You can see the certificate's subject in the admin UI on the connected app details page (Setup > Build > Apps > Create ... find your app and click on the app name). The Digital Certificate field will show you the certificate's subject, it might look something like this:

C=USA, ST=CA, L=San Francisco, O=Salesforce.com, OU=00D..., CN=ACME Inc. 2020 12:00:00 GMT

To download the certificate in its entirety, you can pull the connected app definition via Metadata API using your favorite SF metadata-capable client (e.g. Workbench) with the following package.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

Here's a redacted response, only the cert is shown for relevancy:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ConnectedApp xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

The value of certificate element is PEM-encoded X.509 cert.

  • I am trying to identify the connected apps in my org that uses a certificate, but unable to find the 'Digital Certificate' field, any idea?
