When you visit your profile on the tab Settings you'll find the option "Applications".

It lists the Applications you've granted access. Each Application has a button at the right hand side labelled: 'Remove'.

settings / application / button remove

The expectation is that when you click that button two things happen:

  • the granted access is revoked, aka the access_token is no longer valid
  • the application is removed from the list.

Based on observation I assume none of the mentioned actions happen, simply because clicking the button doesn't send any calls to the server. I could live with the application not being removed from my list but I'm less happy with my granted access not being revoked. If I want to revoke access because an app has gone rogue I rather not have to first file a bug or submit a ticket.

Just in case this is a browser issue: I'm on Chrome/Win10, tested with all Userscripts disabled.

Can this be looked at and fixed, if possible with some priority?

  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog yeah, that sounds similar. Useful to have it linked here. Thanks.

  • The above link says it was completed; the remove button did work ~2 weeks ago, after cleaning up I have nothing remaining that I wish to lose.

    The JavaScript included in the page requires each "Remove" button have an app-disallow class. None of the "Remove" buttons have that class. Running the following in the console should enable the buttons: $('#mainbar a[id][href="#"]:contains("Remove")').click(function(){if(!confirm('Are you sure you want to disallow this application?')) return;var toRemove = $(this).parents('.app');var appId = $(this).attr('id').substring('app-'.length);$.post(`/users/apps/de-authorize/${StackExchange.options.user.userId}`,{ fkey: StackExchange.options.user.fkey, appId},function(){toRemove.remove();});});

    This has been added to be addressed as a part of regular bug duty rotation. It seems like an easy fix so hopefully it'll be picked up soon ^_^

    @JNat nothing personal, but I've seen many cases where "hopefully it'll be picked up soon" or similar wording meant "never", and I mean never - not even 5, 6, 7, and 8 years after it was posted. Well my point is.... I'm skeptic about it. It's just a minor bug with no critical effect, so easy to be ignored. (by the devs who will always have something more important to fix) Nov 15 at 9:05
  • It looks like the button is still not working.
