Modify machine to machine application scopes


I have an existing m2m application which uses the Auth0 Management API and according to best practices the application has been created with the least scopes possible, e.g.: read:users, update:users, delete:users and create:users.
As my application evolved and requires now also reading user assigned roles, I would require an additional scope for my m2m application (read:roles), but I cannot find a way to modify existing m2m applications. For now I did create a new m2m application with the new scopes, but I would like to know if there is really no possibility to modify scopes and why?

Many thanks for your help.

Hi @rthill

I cannot reproduce this. I think you should be able to change the scopes.

Can you post more detail here?


Hi John,

thanks for your fast reply, I don’t know what else to post, do you want screenshots of the settings page of my m2m application or where can you modify the scopes?


That might help, @rthill. I was able to modify my settings, so seeing your screenshot may help, may not.
Also try creating a new M2M app and see if it has the same issue.
