Get the Client ID and Client Secret for your app

Apps you create on the Intuit Developer Portal have unique credentials: a Client ID and a Client Secret.

You’ll use these credentials for tasks like authorizing your app or connecting it to third-party testing tools.

Get your app’s credentials

There’s are two sets of credentials: one for live, in-production apps, and a separate set for sandbox and testing enviornments.

  1. Sign in to your developer account.
  2. Select the Dashboard link on the toolbar.
  3. Select and open an app.
  4. If you’re connecting a sandbox company, go to the Development section. Then select Keys & OAuth.
  5. If you’re setting up a production app, go to the Production section. Then select Keys & OAuth.
  6. Copy the Client ID and Client Secret.

Tip: Remember, the Client ID and Client Secret in the Production section only work for live, in-production apps. The ones in the Development section are only for for your sandbox companies.
