Rotate client secret

To ensure your applications remain secure, you can periodically rotate the Client secret stored in the Kinde-side application.

You can only do this for back-end and machine-to-machine applications.

Note that you can only rotate a client secret by completely deactivating the old one. So you must update any dependent apps, connections, and services with the new secret ASAP.
