Upload images from S3 to dropbox using api

Upload images from S3 to dropbox using api

Hi,

I want to copy image from S3 to dropbox (using dropbox api). So it is basically copying from S3 url to dropbox via api without downloading on my local server. Any leads about how can I go about doing that?

Thanks.

Yes, you can use /2/files/save_url to save files directly to Dropbox from URLs, instead of saving the data locally first:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#files-save_url

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#files-save_url-check_job_status

Those are links to the documentation for the HTTPS endpoints themselves, but we recommend using one of the official SDKs if possible:

Those have corresponding native methods for the HTTPS endpoints.
