DropBox API Explorer V2 still uses V1 oauth

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I'm trying to setup V2 authorization.  From the DOCS, it looks like I use :

 

https://www.dropbox.com/oauth2/authorize

 However the API explorer(dropbox-api-v2-explorer) has a [Get Token] button that issues a call against:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/1/oauth2/authorize

 

 

 

This isn't very helpful since it doesn't match the documentation.  Should I be using: then /1 version or the / version?  What's the difference? Thank you in advance.

The two are functionally equivalent, but the one without /1/ is preferred. (The /1/ route was originally for API v1, which supported both OAuth 1 and OAuth 2, but we introduced the new route to decouple the OAuth version from the API version.)
