Failed to Load Request Error when using Chooser API

Failed to Load Request Error when using Chooser API

We use the Dropbox Chooser API and have recently started having a problem with it (as of yesterday evening). Now when the user selects a file from the Chooser pop-up then clicks "Choose" to confirm their selection, an error appears saying "Failed to load request". The pop-up window does not close and nothing is returned to our app.

 

Nothing about our code has changed in a long time that I'm aware of. I have confirmed that our app has the appropriate permissions in the App Console, and our API key is correct. Was there something that changed on Dropbox's end that would cause this to start happening? It happens in all browsers we've tried it in (Chrome, Edge, and Safari on Windows 10, macOS, and iOS)

Thanks for the report! We'll look into it.

 

Can you also the share the options you're using with the Dropbox Chooser for reference? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the response! The only option we're passing is a custom success function which just takes the returned files and does app-specific logic with them, and the multiselect option is set to true. Everything else should be the default.

We are having the same problem (as of yesterday afternoon)  When trying to upload a file to a client Wealthbox, everyone gets the "failed to load request" and I have tried going through Wealthbox....they say it is a Dropbox issue.
