Reset OAuth Client Secret

post
https://api.linode.com/v4/account/oauth-clients/{clientId}/reset-secret

Resets the OAuth Client secret for a client you own, and returns the OAuth Client with the plaintext secret. This secret is not supposed to be publicly known or disclosed anywhere. This can be used to generate a new secret in case the one you have has been leaked, or to get a new secret if you lost the original. The old secret is expired immediately, and logins to your client with the old secret will fail.

Authorizations

Personal Access Token
OAuth: ( account:read_write)

Path Parameters

clientId
Required
string

The OAuth Client ID to look up.
