Not receiving notifications on webhook

Not receiving notifications on webhook

Explorer | Level 4

Hey,

 

I am not receiving notifications on the webhook URL. I have added and verified webhook URI. Then I tried to upload files, but no notificaitons send out.

After this, can I suppose that each time i upload a file, dropbox would send out the post request to this url?


Thanks!

Can you confirm if you've "linked" or "connected" or "authorized" the app to your account? Webhook notifications will only be sent for events in accounts that are connected to the account.

When you create a Dropbox API app as a developer, it is not automatically connected to your account as if you were an end-user of the app. You will need to connect to it, as covered in the OAuth guide:

Hey Greg,

 

It looks like I am misunderstanding about Dropbox webhook and API. The feature I want as following,

 

When there are some file changes in Dropbox, my website(It build with rails, I have to use a third-party sdk) will get the notification about file change. Then the website will do something when notification come. There will be only one folder, some users(or just one user) upload and modify file in this folder, not each user has a folder.

 

Does this achievable with webhook? or not?

 

Thanks

Puede encontrar información sobre el formato de notificación de webhook aquí en "Formato de notificación":

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/reference/webhooks#documentation

Los datos se proporcionan como JSON, por lo que puede usar cualquier analizador JSON que desee leer.

esa documentacion habla de un header X-Dropbox-Signature, pero el request que recibo en el webhook no existe el header, no encuentro el manual correcto :/

estos son los headers que recibo:

{Keep-Alive}
{application/json}
{}
{gzip,deflate}
{localhost}
{DropboxWebhooks/1.0}
{109}
{81ea4f05acdf00d7a704b1532cb8262d7e5bc026dfa06113fecdc73e6a1b10c2}
{ip}
{dominio}
{24e623ae-23d5-4806-b769-09c15a0aa5b0}

no existe el X-Dropbox-Signature, por eso preguntaba cual es el manual actualizado? gracias.

Acabo de probar esto y me lo han enviado correctamente. Si no funciona para usted, abra un ticket API con los detalles para que podamos verificar el suyo en particular.

I just tried this out, and it is getting sent properly for me. If it's not working for you, please open an API ticket with the details so we can check on yours in particular.

Habia puesto en una respuesta los headers que estoy recibiendo, pero al parecer me borraron esa replica, porque?
