Re: Where can I find my own account_id?

Where can I find my own account_id?

NJF
New member | Level 2

To make a sucessful call to:  https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/users/get_account,
I need to provide (my own) account_id.

I am trying to access my own account via the api v2 bypassing the OAuth flow, but using the app registration page generated access token, using node and axios, directly calling the api not using any sdk. In the 'data:  {}' part, I need to provide an account_id.

It looks like this: "dbid:AAH4f99T0taONIb-YourACIDWxbNQ6ywGRopQngc".

Where can I find that?

To access the account information, including the account ID, for the account for the access token you're using, you should use the /2/users/get_current_account endpoint instead of /2/users/get_account.

That doesn't take any parameters, and instead just returns the account information based on the access token used for the call.
