How do I migrate this to the v2 Core API?

 

DropBoxUtils.mDBApi.getSession().isLinked()

I previously had been using dropbox-android-sdk-1.6.3 but I don't see anything that allows me to check this status in the core api v2 for Dropbox.

The API v2 Java SDK works a little differently than the v1 SDK, so there isn't a direct equivalent. The isLinked method could be called on the Session object to determine if it had an access token, but the v2 SDK doesn't have an equivalent session object.

Instead, you can should just check if you have a DbxClientV2 object. The DbxClientV2 is constructed using the access token in the first place.

You can see how the example app does this here:

That should be a string that identifies your app, generally your app name and app version. You can find more information here under newBuilder:

In this example, is 'examples-v2-demo' anything specific or just some text?

DbxRequestConfig.newBuilder("examples-v2-demo")
