Where to create Connected App?

Hello Everyone,
This is more kind of a dumb question. I have a requirement where we are integrating two Salesforce organisation. I refered a few articles regarding this and i found that everyone are creating a Connected App only on the Target side(meaning where to send my data).
So really wondering, do we always need to create a Connected App only on the receiving side? Or there are scenarios where you can create it in Source side also. If yes, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Hi Rajkumar,

I have gone through your question. We need to create a connected app when we want to alert our org about an entry point(in your case, your source org). 
Unless you are sending a connection request to your source org, you do not need to create a connected app.
For more information, check the link below -

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks and Regards,
