Invalid Async jobid

Explorer | Level 4

i am working on uploading multiple files to dropbox in chunks using javascript SDK methods "filesUploadSessionStart" and "filesUploadSessionAppendV2" and i use "filesUploadSessionFinishBatch" after uploading all files, which return me a job id like "dbjid:AABlCnjCjyN1hlWjt7yTgcS9jD95DnYMug9_tSpn66X0fsVN3vXV4I6ZTHshl2vjFMOdOAGH9Q8wd6ofr9_6kFKE".

All works fine and all the files are uploaded correctly on dropbox the only problem i am having is that when i check this job id via API console using the endpoint "upload_session/finish_batch/check" it always returns the response 

{
  "error_summary": "invalid_async_job_id/...",
  "error": {
    ".tag": "invalid_async_job_id"
  }
}

The format of the job ID you shared here looks correct, so we'll need to look into this further. To help track this issue down, can you let me know:

  • how long after receiving that job ID did you make the call to upload_session/finish_batch/check that fails with "invalid_async_job_id"?
  • can you double check that you're making the call to upload_session/finish_batch/check with an access token for the same app and user as the one you made to upload_session/finish_batch to start the job?

It was my mistake i was trying to trigger the job from my code and then trying to use the API console to check for the job_id which for some reason does not work
