Delete Hook Secrets

When you no longer need Hook Secrets for a given Hook, you can delete them using either the Dashboard or the Management API.

Hook Secrets can also be imported and exported using the Deploy Command-Line Interface (CLI) tool. To learn more, read Deploy CLI Tool.

Delete Hook Secrets using the Dashboard

  1. Navigate to the Hooks page in the Auth0 Dashboard, and click the pencil icon next to the Hook you want to edit.

  2. In the Hook editor, click the wrench icon, and click Secrets.

  3. Locate the Hook Secret you want to delete, click the trash can icon, and click Yes.

Delete Hook Secrets using the Management API

Make a DELETE call to the Delete Hook Secrets endpoint. Be sure to replace HOOK_ID, HOOK_SECRET_NAME, and MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN placeholder values with your Hook ID, your Hook Secret name(s), and Management API access token, respectively.


curl --request DELETE \
  --url 'https://YOUR_DOMAIN/api/v2/hooks/HOOK_ID/secrets' \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN' \
  --data '{ [ "HOOK_SECRET_NAME", "HOOK_SECRET_NAME" ] }'
var client = new RestClient("https://YOUR_DOMAIN/api/v2/hooks/HOOK_ID/secrets");
var request = new RestRequest(Method.DELETE);
request.AddHeader("authorization", "Bearer MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN");
request.AddParameter("undefined", "{ [ \"HOOK_SECRET_NAME\", \"HOOK_SECRET_NAME\" ] }", ParameterType.RequestBody);
