OAuth2 response

OAuth2 response

IQCloud
Explorer | Level 3

Hello,

           when we access the auth 2 authorization interface at:

https://api.dropbox.com/1/oauth2/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=zzzzzzz&redirect_uri=https:/...

 

          If the authentication is successful and user has accepted that my app can access their files,

               it then invoke https://localhost:4433/Test with the Code parameter and token info.

               From there, we do not know which user has just accepted our app.

               Is there anyway to have drop box invoke https://localhost:4433 and add the user id or anything to identify the user?

 

Please let me know!

Thanks

You're using the "code" flow here, which means that you'll get an "authorization code" back on your redirect URI. You should then exchange that authorization code for an "access token" by calling /oauth2/token. The /oauth2/token endpoint's response will include the 'account_id' for the user account that authorized the app. You can also call /2/users/get_current_account with an access token to check what account the access token is for.

 

Also, note that per the documentation, the app authorization page should be accessed at https://www.dropbox.com/oauth2/authorize (not on api.dropbox.com).
