Is there a way to retrieve client id and call back url from the entries in Setup -> Develop -> Remote Access by just knowing login details?

Like if I want my desktop app to be dynamic and should be used across instances/organizations, how can I use the rest api by just the login details provided by the user?

Based on the login details provided, should I pull the metadata api (if so how to do that using c#? any examples/links?) and create the remote access and query the client id?? if so how to query the client id??

I know my question is similar to this, but the purpose is different :- Can i query the Remote access object to get consumer key and consumer secret?


There isn't, but you don't need to, your connected apps (or remote access) settings are automatically shared and are usable across different instances/organizations.

  • oh Thanks @superfell do you mean to say that If i have a remote access created in one organization, can i connect to some other organization by just changing the login information and using the same consumer key and consumer secret created in my organization? – Sathya Mar 15 '13 at 17:59
  • yes, you don't need a different consumer key/secret for each org. – superfell Mar 15 '13 at 19:29
  • These settings are global as @superfell says, one thing to be wary of though is that they are cached, changes can take a few minutes to take effect which can cause a lot of grief when you're trying to debug things! – Matt Lacey Jun 13 '13 at 1:41
