Download from within Application causes ERROR 403

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I wrote my own tiny application and want to download a file from my own Dropbox Team Storage. I created a share link for the file I want to download and changed it to ?dl=1

 

If I use eg. Chrome on a computer on which i'm logged into Dropbox the download starts immediately. Same happens if I open the link on a computer on which I'm NOT logged into Dropbox.

 

However as soon as my application opens the URL it receives ERROR 403. For sure that application is not logged into Dropbox.

Can you share the code you're using and a sample URL that reproduces the issue so I can take a look? Thanks in advance!

Hey Greg,

 

thanks for your reply but we already deleted / canceled our DropBox Team and moved to Google Cloud Storage which works perfectly, we simply had to change the URL in our code.
