Getting error: "This app is not allowed to query for scheme dbapi-2" after upgrade to version 1.3.13 for iOS

Getting error: "This app is not allowed to query for scheme dbapi-2" after upgrade to version 1.3.13 for iOS

I recently upgraded my dropbox SDK to version 1.3.13 to support 64-bit devices.  However, I am now getting the error:

-canOpenURL: failed for URL: "dbapi-2://1/connect" - error: "This app is not allowed to query for scheme dbapi-2"

Do I need to generate a new key to use this version?

Thanks

(Thanks, Mark!)

Ben, I assume you're using iOS 9? Take a look at https://blogs.dropbox.com/developers/2015/08/important-update-your-core-api-app-for-ios-9/.

Yes, that's correct, and this did soleve it thanks. This requires that the dropbox mobile app must be on the device also, and I didn't think that was required before.  Do I have that wrong?

 

Thanks, again

I assume you're using the Core API and seeing this during auth?

If so, no the Dropbox app doesn't need to be installed. If the app is present, a streamlined authorization will happen in the Dropbox app. If it's not present, the authorization will happen in a web view embedded in your app.

Hi Steve,

 

Can you please elaborate? I have the same problem after updating to IOS 9.1 (xcode 7.1.1). I have included dbapi-1, dbapi-2 and dbapi-3 in LSApplicationQueriesSchemes. Now I can access to save and load to Dropbox again, but just if the app is installed. If the app is not installed I keep getting the  error: 

-canOpenURL: failed for URL: "dbapi-2://1/connect" - error: "(null)"

It used to work before.

Hi Victor, it looks like you posted on two threads, so I'll follow up on the other one:

Hi Gregory,

Sorry. It was my fault. I was presenting this:

[[DBSession sharedSession] linkFromController:this];

from the wrong controller.

It's all right now with the dbapi-2 application queries scheme.

Thank you.
