  1. Provide a description of the key, and a duration for the key. When done, select Save.

After saving the key, the value of the key is displayed. Copy this value because you are not able to retrieve the key later. You provide the key value with the application ID to log in as the application. Store the key value where your application can retrieve it. Tenant Id is required to get the access token. To get the tenant ID, select Properties for your Active Directory. Copy the Directory ID. Here is a link on how to find the tenant id.
