Dropbox webhook verification not possibile with ifttt or zapier, what about google apps script?

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

Dear dropbox community,

 

I have found it impossible to use the dropbox webhooks with services like zapier and ifttt. This due to the fact that there is the verification process. 

My next solution was to use google apps script in order to make services act on file changes within the folder of my dropbox app. 

However I can find no example of how to go about this...

It would be great to work off an example! 

dropbox webhook > triggers > google apps script > triggers > something

Out of curiosity, is there a reason you don't like IFTTT and Zapier's existing Dropbox support? (https://ifttt.com/dropbox and https://zapier.com/zapbook/dropbox/)

I'm not sure if they use webhooks or not. Maybe you want to use something specific in the Dropbox webhook payload?

yes, the check if something new in a folder is not recursive, plus only zapier supports such an action. therefore i need to make use of the webhook functionality

Hi Dimitrie, we don't have a sample for using Dropbox webhooks with Google Apps Script specifically, but I'll be sure to pass this along as feedback.

We do have a sample Python app here:

https://github.com/dropbox/mdwebhook

And the full documentation can be found here:
