How can I restrict token use to a certain domain or IP address?

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

I'm using an access token to make calls to a single account. How can I restrict that token, so that Dropbox only accepts API calls from a certain domain or IP address?

We keep our tokens safe, but it would be good to restrict access in case the token gets stolen. This seems like a common API structure to help manage security, but I can't find the setting in Dropbox.

Thanks,

John

Hi John, the Dropbox API doesn't offer this, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

I have that same need. I will handle very sensitive information and one of the business requirements is the restriction by IP. The implementation of this feature would certainly make me choose Dropbox.
