Does Dropbox have event trigger when uploading a file?

Does Dropbox have event trigger when uploading a file?

Hi! 

I'm looking for a way to notify a server that I've uploaded a file to Dropbox folder. I would like to download it from my server (hosted in Google) automatically after uploading. Does Dropbox have the tools for that?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey @AlvaroHuertas, thanks for posting your question today!

 

Are you actually using an API, or do you just want to use Dropbox as a normal user?

 

Any additional info you can give us, would be really helpful.

 

Thanks!

I'm performing like a normal user. Dropping files in a folder from the windows file system linked to dropbox folder.

Hi @AlvaroHuertas, currently, there isn't a method to do as you request without using the Dropbox API using webhooks.

 

If you have any further queries, feel free to message back.
