Retrieve Application Client ID from API

Currently, there is no way to retrieve an Application Client ID via Cloud Identity API's. Currently, you can retrieve an API Client ID and Secret (GET /v1.0/apiclients/)  but not for an application (GET /v1.0/applications/) . In the Portal, an Admin is able to view an application Client ID, therefore, same info should be able to be retrieved via API

    Hi. When I use the same request (GET /v1.0/applications{{id}}), I get a similar response, however, the clientId and clientSecret fields are not there. Is there something I have to configure to be able to see the client id/secret fields?
    My response that looks like:

                "applicationUrl": "https://localhost/oidc",
