Dropbox Apps limit

Dropbox Apps limit

Hi DropBox community,

 

My problem is: If i have to programmatically create apps for different types of things i want to do, for example:

- An app that i use only to read account info (scopes: account.info.read)

- An app that i use only to upload images (scopes: ...)

- ...

 

do i have to worry about a max number of Apps that i can create? If yes, where can i find those limitations based on my plan?

Thank you!!

Dropbox does not limit how many apps you can register, however Dropbox also does not support registering apps programmatically. You should only be registering apps manually. You should create one app registration per actual app that you are building. That only needs to be done once per app so it should be manageable to do so manually.

 

Note that if you have an app with different features, you can request different subsets of scopes at authorization time, without creating multiple app registrations for the same actual app. You can request a particular subset of scopes by setting the 'scope' parameter on /oauth2/authorize.
