Why do apps share the same key?

I have two vue client apps. Both of them share the same ClientId which I find odd. I’d expect them to have unique ids. So the issue I’m getting is that, on two separate web apps, you can register on one and sign in on another even if they are completely separate applications.

Can anybody help me understand this?

@scottywalker92 Your Okta org probably has just one application registered and you might be using same configuration on both the applications. Can you confirm? Thanks.

Thanks for your response.

I’m on the free account and have 2 applications running on Okta (2 out of the 5 free ones) One that is for a test application and one for production.

I use Vue and the only information it needs is the Domain and the ClientId. So I presumed there would be a difference in the ClientId so that I could differentiate test and production but everything seems to be the same (except the redirect urls I set up etc).

The problem with this being if I set up a user on the test app, that user can ask access prod. This seems highly illogical to me.

I’m not sure what I’m missing or if I’m being really stupid, but how do you differentiate 2 applications under the same org?

In a nutshell, if I register on one application, I don’t want them to have access to another application under the same org. That should be possible?

Ignore me, I’m an idiot. I just noticed that the ClientId has a slight difference. Start and end are the same but the middle isn’t.

Thanks for the help, next time I’ll double check before replying :blush::joy:
