I managed to add a connected app in a sandbox instance but when I try to add one in the production instance, I receive this error.
The application name [name] / [API name] has been used before. Use a new unique name for your application.
This happens no matter what name or API name I try.
Steps to reproduce:
- Setup > Create > Apps > Connected Apps > New
- Fill out the connected app name, API name, contact email.
- I used OAuth settings (but tried with others and got the same problem)
Here's a post in their support forum of the same issue (dating back to June 2013) and there are no solutions. Some potential help has been provided but the article linked to does not work any more.
I just need to make a connected app so that I can get an API key to use the REST API with. If there is a different way of doing this, that would also be helpful.
