To keep your applications secure, rotate certificates and client secrets on a regular basis and apply updated security configurations to applications built from templates if new configuration templates become available. There is no need to recreate your applications in PingCentral to apply new templates. Replace the templates associated with your applications and promote them again.

  1. Click the Expand icon associated with the application you want to update and then click the Pencil icon.

    All of the editable information displays on one page.

  2. To update the name, description, and owners, change the information in the Name, Description, and Owners fields. Click Save.
  3. To change the template used to create the application, click Change Template and select a new template from the Select Template page. Click Save and Close.

  4. Optional: To update OAuth or OIDC application information:
    • In the Client section, change the scopes associated with OAuth or OIDC applications. Select or clear the appropriate check boxes and click Save.

      You cannot edit scopes for applications created in version 1.2.0. However, you can update the template associated with an application to a template created in a later version, which will allow you to update scope information.

      If metadata is used, the attribute mapping section might also need to be updated to include new attributes from the metadata file.
