If you know more about files sizes, you can make more informed decisions about which files you upload and then you can maximize the space in your Dropbox Basic account?

Hello, im following the guide on how to use the APIs so my app can use Login with Dropbox. But im having issues getting a token.

This is my code to see why im getting the following error.

<?php

$request = new HttpRequest();
$request->setUrl('https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/auth/token/from_oauth1');
$request->setMethod(HTTP_METH_POST);

$request->setHeaders(array(
  'postman-token' => '273abf8c-7816-67c2-0949-f24bfc57383c',
  'cache-control' => 'no-cache',
  'content-type' => 'application/json',
  'authorization' => 'Basic m1qbv920v0xwxlm:xxxxxx'
));

$request->setBody('{
    "oauth1_token": "m1qbv920v0xwxlm",
    "oauth1_token_secret": "xxxxx"
}');

try {
  $response = $request->send();

  echo $response->getBody();
} catch (HttpException $ex) {
  echo $ex;
}

This is the error.

{
    "error_summary": "invalid_oauth1_token_info/.",
    "error": {
        ".tag": "invalid_oauth1_token_info"
    }
}

The specific /2/auth/token/from_oauth1 endpoint you're using is only be for migrating legacy OAuth 1 access tokens to OAuth 2. If you're just building your app now, you wouldn't have any OAuth 1 access tokens so you wouldn't need to use that endpoint.


The full documentation for the Dropbox OAuth endpoints can be found here. Another helpful resource is our OAuth developer guide
