Convert Custom App to Public App

5 1 2


I accidentally created a custom app / converted my public app to a custom app. Since I already requested some accesses and got the approvals I don't want to just create a new app and copy paste everything.

Is there a way to convert a custom app to a public app?

Hey, @ChristophLoy.

Thanks for sharing your question with our network.

I double-checked with our Partner team on your behalf, and they advised that it's not possible to convert a Custom app to a Public app at this time. This is because Public apps authenticate differently from Custom apps, and have different approval and set-up processes.

We recommend that you create a new Public app for your needs, and if you have further questions please let us know.

Warm regards,
