Re: Do webhooks fire for generated 'own user' development tokens?

Do webhooks fire for generated 'own user' development tokens?

Helpful | Level 6

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a minimal POC with Dropbox paper and webhooks. I have created an app and pointed the webhook URI to my demo application. Everything is enabled, challenge accepted and looking fine. My app works when I send it a test notification myself, but it looks as if Dropbox isn't firing notifications when I change files in the app's folder.

I've read a lot of other posts on the subject, and I suspect that OAuth is tripping me up. I am currently only using the generated access token for my own user account - will this cause webhooks to fire, or do I need to connect the 'proper way'?

Thanks in advance!

Okay, so I missed something vital here: When you give an app 'specific folder' permissions, that folder goes inside /Apps. I had an app-named folder in the root of my Dropbox, and was trying to make changes there.

One thing that might help is if the folder configuration UI in the App Console had a leading /Apps/ before the folder name to make this clearer?
