Updating an App in Developer Hub

After creating an app, you can update its basic information, OAuth scopes, App URL, and webhook details. You can even enable or disable them.
Let’s look at them in detail.

Basic Information

To update the basic information of an app, perform the steps given below:

  1. Click on the app that you want to update.
  2. In the Basic Information page, you will find the Name and Description of the app under the Editable Information section.
  3. Make the required changes as per your need, and click on the Save button.

These are the updates that you can perform in your Basic Information section.

OAuth

You can update the scopes of your App Token or your User Token in the OAuth section. To do so, perform the steps given below:

  1. Click on the app that you want to update.
  2. In the OAuth page, you can update the scopes of either the App Token or the User Token.
    • App Token: You need to use the app token while creating an app that performs static functions and requires certain permissions to manage its own state.
    • User Token: A developer must acquire a user token in order to perform actions on behalf of a user. The app issues a user token when the user authenticates, and the token enables it to act on the user's behalf.
