We don't hide the client secret at all actually as it's generated by the
Keycloak Server. For other secrets that are provided by the user we don't
expose them again.
The client secret is just not returned with the client request. One reason
for this is that a client can have different types of credentials and it's
pluggable. Also, there's no need to expose the secret when retrieving
clients in general (i.e. listing all clients). You can get the secret from
where Marko said, but also from:
And you can also get it through the client registration services. Take a
look at the docs for that one.
