Creating an App Identifier for AppManager
A Client Identity and Client Secret must be created for the new incoming APP – AppManager. AppRegNew.aspx will be used to generate those items.
- Login as Administrator onto your SharePoint Admin Center.
- Click On apps in left column.
- Click on App Catalog.
- Navigate to http://<SharePointAppCatalogURL>/_layouts/15/AppRegNew.aspx.
- The App Information page will be displayed, where input field to create the Client Identity will be displayed:
Set the following fields:
- Client Id: – Click the Generate button and SharePoint will generate the Client ID.
- Client Secret– Click the Generate button and SharePoint will generate the Client Secret.
In the example below the redirect for the app manager website is: https://myappmanager.onakumina.com. The domain is the redirect without the https example: myappmanager.onakumina.com
- TITLE – Is usually the domain of your AppManager plus a client secret expiration date (one year from the generation of this secret, which is what we are doing right now). The “TITLE” is the app title seen in “Site Settings” > “Site app permissions”. Example:
- App Domain – Domain example:
- Redirect URI – The endpoint in your remote application “AppManager” (website). This must be of the form https://DomainName. Example:
Click the “Create” Button
- Verify that the Identifier was generated successfully.
- Click on OK button
