How Do I View Details of Client Apps in IDCS?

Each time a visual application is created on a Visual Builder instance, a companion OAuth client application is automatically created in IDCS. As your app progresses to its deployment phase, another client application is created for each application profile used to deploy the app to a development, staging, or production instance. This means that a single visual application may have several client apps running on IDCS for the lifespan of the app.

When troubleshooting issues with your app, especially those relating to identity propagation, it might be helpful to check whether a client app exists and examine it for configuration issues—which you can do by directly accessing the client app from the visual application's Settings editor.

  1. Click the Menu in the upper-right corner of your visual application, then select Settings.
  2. Click Application Profiles to view the application profiles used by your app.
  3. Select the profile whose details you want to view, then click IDCS Details. For example, here's what you might see for the Base configuration profile, used by default for development, test, and production deployments:
  4. Use the links to access your IDCS client app and examine its details. If you don't have permissions, you can provide the client app ID to your administrator or Oracle Support.
