Where do I find the client id and client secret of an existing connected app? The documentation talks about this information being provided when creating a new app, but what if my app already exists? I can't find this info.


Just navigate Name > Setup > Create > apps and then click on the app you need. The page you load will contain those information under API (Enable OAuth Settings).

  • fwiw in my interface I just searched in the left sidebar for "App Manager" and then at the top-right "New Connected App". Oct 4 '17 at 20:13
  • It is available only in Classic UI. Sep 14 '20 at 7:34

In the Enterprise edition I am using, to find the client id and secret for an existing app, I had to go to Setup > App Manager > Down Arrow next to app name > View > look under 'API (Enable OAuth Settings)'.

This was very confusing as you'd think you could go to Setup > Connected Apps > then click on the App name to see it... but nope, it wasn't there. Nor was it there when editing the App. Only through the process above could I find it.

    I think this is the right answer, not sure if they changed settings, but now the "consumer key" and "consumer secret" can be found following these steps.

  • There's no such option as "App Manager" in the Setup menu, did you mean "Manage Apps"?

  • I no longer have access on the project I was working on when I answered this question but it sounds like perhaps they changed the name of the menu item from "App Manager" to "Manage Apps" Jan 10 '20 at 21:47

    yep, it's Setup -> Apps -> App Manager (then as described). Or you can just type "App Manager" into Setup's global search box.

First I navigated to: Build -> Create -> Apps. Here I see list of "Connected Apps". (with respect to classic UI)

If you click on "Edit" or "Manage" it doesn't show client_id or secret. To see these details I had to click on the apps's name itself.


From the Setup menu (not "Service Setup"), navigate to PLATFORM TOOLS -> Apps -> App Manager enter image description here

Find your app in the list, then choose "View" from the small dropdown at the far right.
