Developer App,



Update Developer App

Updates a developer app. You can also add an app to an API product with this call, which automatically generates an API key for the app to use when calling APIs in the product. (If you want to use an existing API key for another API product as well, see Add API Product to Key.)


Be sure to include all existing attributes in the request body.


Note that you cannot update the scopes associated with the app by using this API. Instead, use "Update the Scope of an App".


The app name is the primary key used by Edge to identify the app. Therefore, you cannot change the app name after creating it.

CPS: With Core Persistence Services, the custom attribute limit is 18.
