Error 500 when attempting to upload a file

Explorer | Level 3

Hello.

I use the API v2(Not Business API) to upload some files for my application.

Normally, the uploads are working fine.

However, as a result of changing my dropbox plan from basic to business, the files that used to come in for uploads can no longer be uploaded.

But oddly enough, some files can be uploaded.

 

The response is as follows below.

 

statusCode: 500

Content-Security-Policy=[sandbox allow-forms allow-scripts]
Content-Type=[text/plain; charset=utf-8]
Date=[Tue, 30 Jun 2020 03:13:52 GMT]
Server=[envoy]
Strict-Transport-Security=[max-age=15552000; includeSubDomains]
Transfer-Encoding=[chunked]
X-Dropbox-Request-Id=[20ab8a5bdafa420c97ba8f5ae6c4a9c5]
X-Robots-Tag=[noindex,nofollow,noimageindex,noindex,nofollow,noimageindex]

 

By the way, I tried uploading same file from the browser(Google Chrome 83.0.4103.116 64bit) and got the same error too.

 

I would be very grateful if you could help me with it.

Thank you.

Thanks for the report! It looks like this was due to an availability issue in certain regions. That should be resolved now.

I tried uploading again a little later and this time it worked.

You must be really confused. I know. So am I.

 

If this is a reproducible error, please let me know.
