We have connected apps that I wish to delete and recreate for our deployment process using OAuth2 Register through .Net. I am able delete the app and then recreate it. But if I run the process again straight after, the newly created connected app is not found and I can't delete it and recreate it. If I go to Salesforce I can see the connected app is there. I found to resolve this I can go directly into Salesforce and click edit and save on the connected app. Now when I run my code the connected app is found ready for deletion and recreation and it works again. Is there a value I should possibly be passing to Salesforce to make sure the app is "active" as it seems it just requires a manual save on Salesforce and my code works.

Please limit code inclusions to only the relevant elements, such as an MVR (minimum viable reproduction).

You should probably not be deleting and recreating Connected Apps as a general rule. You only need once instance of it, and it need only live in your production/business org. As long as you have the client Id and client secret, you can use that app for any org you wish to connect to.
