Problem switching to production key (using google)

I am trying to change from using development key to production key. I’ve followed the instructions in and was able to get the “try connection” to work but when I switch my server’s client ID and client secret, my server gets an error. Auth0’s logging shows the following:

“date”: “2020-10-06T00:39:20.041Z”,
“type”: “f”,
“description”: “Unknown client: ***",
“connection_id”: “”,
“ip”: “...”,
“user_agent”: “Firefox 80.0.0 / Ubuntu 0.0.0”,
“details”: {
“body”: {},
“qs”: {
“client_id”: "",
“redirect_uri”: “”,
“state”: "
“response_type”: “code”,
“scope”: “openid profile email”
“error”: {
“message”: “Unknown client: ********”,
“oauthError”: “invalid_request”,
“type”: “request-error”
“hostname”: “”,
“log_id”: “90020201006003923866000499649762847809327568498347475026”,
“_id”: “90020201006003923866000499649762847809327568498347475026”,
“isMobile”: false

Since the test works on the website, i’m not sure what i’m missing in my settings, what else could be different that I should double check?

This error is related to your client id. Can you double-check the client ID you got from google is not missing any characters? Or including unwanted chars?

I copied and pasted them. it is the same one i put in social google, where the ‘try connection’ said it works.

The try connection works after you switched to your prod keys, but nothing else?

I’ve copied over the authorized URIs and redirect URIs from auth0 to google credential service. and i switched my working service from using dev key to production key and i get the error message i posted above.

But the try function still works?

Yes, with google credential’s client ID and key, yes, try connection works.

Can you DM me a HAR file of the transaction where you run into this error?

This was a mixup between the application client ID and the google connection client ID.
