Step 1: Generate a new key

To start, open the Azure control panel (, and navigate to the Azure Active Directory page.

In the selected app registration, navigate to the Certificates & secrets page

On the Certificates & secrets page, delete the old key, then select New client secret.

You can name the key whatever you like. In this case, we named it Greetly refresh key demo. The key expiry duration must be set to 6 months. Click add once you’re finished.

Copy the new key and paste it into a text file. You’ll need it later. The key will disappear once you leave the page. If you lose the key, simply delete the old key and make a new one.

Note: Be sure to set a 6 month reminder to refresh the key. The integration will not work once the key expires.
