"Application URL already exists"


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage OAuth2 Client Applications;
  2. Register one Client Application and save it;
  3. Register another Client Application with the URL (Client) used previously;
  4. The error message "Application URL already exists" will show up.

OBS.: If you want to use multiple API users in one Client (e.g. CPI, Boomi) connecting with SuccessFactors using OAuth2 authentication you should create one SF Client Application for each API user you meant to use in the Client system.
