Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
Just to follow up... Setting the taskAffinity property in the manifest for the dropbox AuthActivity seemed to fix the problem. The oauth flow is now able to relaunch our app. I also set excludeFromRecents to true which cleared up another issue but could be involved here as well.
Thanks! I'm glad to hear you were able to track that down.
@Drageniix If you're still seeing this, can you try that as well?
Can you please elabourate. How to set this attribute and exactly where.
@Rishi I believe they were referring to setting 'taskAffinity' and/or 'excludeFromRecents' for the 'com.dropbox.core.android.AuthActivity' in the app's AndroidManifest.xml, e.g., here in the sample:
The Android documentation for these can be found here:
@Greg K. I am glad that you responded. I tried both attributes but it did not helped me. I copied everything from example to my application. And problem is still not resolved.
When I am clicking on manual back after clicking on allow, app does have a token and it is fetching all the files. But I want browser to redirect to my application automatically after clicking allow button.
Please help me. I am stucked on this since 2 days.
@Rishi First, for reference, does the redirect work in the Android sample app itself for you?
If so, can you provide your own test project that reproduces this issue so we can reproduce it here and investigate? Thanks in advance!
@Greg-DB yes, Sample android application is working fine and getting redirected to original app. but I have copied each file in my application, It is not happening. allow is not redirecting from my chrome browser to my application.
@Rishi Since the sample application works, it sounds like there's something about how your app is set up that is causing this.
So that we can reproduce it and look into it, can you make and share a test project that shows this issue? Thanks in advance!
