Reset an OpenID Connect Client Secret

Endpoint URL: {identityDomain}/{customerId}/config/clients/{oidcClientId}/secret


Resets the client secret for an OpenID Connect (OIDC) confidential client or configuration client. Resetting the secret lets periodically rotate client secrets or to change a client secret you believe might have been compromised.


This endpoint requires token-based authentication. To obtain an access token, you must use a configuration client (using the client ID as the username and the client secret as the password) to access the /{customerId}/login/token endpoint. The access token returned from the /{customerId}/login/token endpoint is then used in the Authorization header of your API call.

For example, if you get back the access token Ki712dpGq5GPQcsxMHY6ShHY7wU_iTs0o9dPx4TEzf5yLIvddjnDVBJxjPDucf5YVB then your Authorization header would look like this when using Curl:

-H 'Authorization: Bearer Ki712dpGq5GPQcsxMHY6ShHY7wU_iTs0o9dPx4TEzf5yLIvddjnDVBJxjPDucf5YVB'

In Postman, set the Authorization Type to Bearer and use the access token as the value of the Token field.
