Client Secret Rotation

API Connect application client id & secret don't expire so there is no way to force consumers to change it regularly. API Connect should provide either secret expiry or means to get the last password update date so that we can implement one on our own.

    API Connect does provide the created_at and updated_at as part credentials object. At this point we are not planning on surfacing this information up to the Manager. Rotation of the Client ID or Client Secret without the close coordination of the API Consumer could cause an outage or negative impact.
