View Application Type - Confidential or Public
This guide will show you how to use Auth0's Dashboard to check whether an application is registered with Auth0 as a confidential or public application.
Auth0 determines this based on the Token Endpoint Authentication Method setting, which defines how an application authenticates against the token endpoint.
- Navigate to the Applications page in the Auth0 Dashboard, and click the name of the Application to view.
- Locate the Token Endpoint Authentication Method.
Its valid values are:
None, for a public application without a client secret
Post, for an application using HTTP POST parameters
Basic, for an application using HTTP Basic parameters
These values map to confidential and public applications as follows:
|Application Type||Token Endpoint Authentication Method|
|Confidential||Basic, Post, unspecified|
