GET request from FTP server throwing 400 error

GET request from FTP server throwing 400 error

cvieira
New member | Level 2

We need to run GET requests from an FTP client to download the content and we’re getting a 400 error with an error message saying that something went wrong on Dropbox's side. Our method has previously worked, so it appears something has changed on Dropbox's side and we need an urgent answer.

 

I'm trying to post the 400 response we get, but it keeps being marked as spam and deleted. So if someone can email me from support, that'd be ace

Are you attempting to download from a shared link directly? If so, you may be running in to the issue discussed here. Please take a look at that and see if it helps.

 

Otherwise, I'll be happy to help with any issues you're having with the Dropbox API, but I'll need some more information. In that case, please reply with:

  • the name and version number of the platform and SDK/library you are using, if any
  • the steps to reproduce the issue, including relevant code snippet(s), but don't include any access/refresh token(s)
