Add user accounts to Dropbox app

Explorer | Level 4

Kindly tell me how to add users to a dropbox app.

I want to be able to view and download files/folders from different accounts through same auth token.

I had searched V2 API, but couldn't find a function that lets me add accounts to the app apart from the one (current account) which created it.

Thanks.

In order to allow other users to link to your app, you'll need to implement the OAuth app authorization flow in your app. There's a guide that explains how it works here:

Exactly how you implement this depends on what SDK/library you're using (if any). Please refer to the documentation for whichever SDK or library you're using for information on how to implement this flow using.

Thank you so much.

The article in the link was really helpful to understand the concept of oAuth.
