Configure Client Apps

You can register a Mule app with Anypoint Connector for MQ (Anypoint MQ Connector). When the app is registered, Anypoint MQ lists the client ID and client secret for the app. Use the client ID and client secret values when configuring the connection types for Anypoint MQ Connector in a Mule app in Anypoint Studio.

You can also regenerate the client secret, if necessary.

Register a Client App

An app does not have to exist for you to register it with Anypoint MQ Connector.

To register an app:

  1. Log in to Anypoint Platform.

  2. Click MQ in the Anypoint Platform menu or in the main Anypoint Platform screen.

  3. Click Client Apps in the left navigation pane.

  4. Click the blue plus (+) icon:

  5. Specify the name of the client app.

  6. Click Save Changes.

  7. Click the client app entry to view the client app ID and client secret value in the details pane.

    The client secret value is obfuscated unless you click Show:

    • Click the Copy button for the client app ID or client secret to copy the value to your clipboard.

To delete the client app, click Delete.

Regenerate a Client Secret

You might need to regenerate the client secret for a client app ID if your organization’s security policy requires that you change client secrets on a schedule.

Another reason you might need to regenerate the client secret is to revoke access to a client ID by a specific consumer or publisher. In this case, you can regenerate the client secret in Anypoint MQ and reconfigure the secret in only those apps for which you want to allow access.

To regenerate the client secret:

  1. Log in to Anypoint Platform.

  2. Click MQ in the Anypoint Platform menu or in the main Anypoint Platform screen.

  3. Click Client Apps from the left navigation pane.

  4. Click the client app entry to view the client app ID and client secret value in the details pane.

  5. Click Regenerate Secret:
