  1. Creating your application

    1. Select the "Application" option in “Add an application” prompt.

    2. Name the “New item” as “Admin Tools Enterprise”, "Clean My Org", or "Backup My Org" (based on which solution you're using).

    3. Provide your application with tag names that will assist with locating your application item in the future.

    4. Click “Add Item” when done.


  1. Go to the "Settings" Tab of your newly created application.

  1. Scrolling to the "Application" section in “Settings”, click the "Registered Info" button. The App ID will be is listed here. Copy the App ID and paste it into the App ID field for the identity you're setting up in the Clean My Org/Backup My Org application that is running.

  1. NEXT, click the "Update" button.

  1. Configure the Redirect URIs:

    1. Finally, ensure you “Add” your URI to “Redirect URI” before selecting "Update" to save these changes.


Please add the real domain you will be running Clean My Org/Backup My Org from this Redirect URI. Ensure that '/' is not included at the end of your domain as this could potentially cause Admin Tools, Backup My Org, or Clean My Org to unsuccessfully connect to the Redirect URI.

NOTE: for Backup My Org, this is (usually) both http and https://localhost:8500, or http://yourwebserver:8500

NOTE: for Clean My Org, this is (usually) both http and https://localhost:8000, or http://yourwebserver:8000


You should now have the OAuth App ID and Redirects necessary to run Clean My Org/Backup My Org.
