Hi all, 

I have a problem to integrate Dorpbox in my app.
I have entered in the GUI a redirect URL: 

http://localhost:8080/portal/cloudHoster.jsf

I´m generating the url which I´m using to redirect to Dropbox to login / approve:

	public String generateAuthorizeUrl() {

		// Read app info file (contains app key and app secret)
		DbxAppInfo appInfo;
		appInfo = new DbxAppInfo(APP_KEY, APP_SECRET);

		// Run through Dropbox API authorization process
		DbxRequestConfig requestConfig = new DbxRequestConfig("foo");
		DbxWebAuth webAuth = new DbxWebAuth(requestConfig, appInfo);
		
		
		DbxWebAuth.Request webAuthRequest = DbxWebAuth.newRequestBuilder().build();
		
		String authorizeUrl = webAuth.authorize(webAuthRequest);

		return authorizeUrl;
	}

After I approve it, I get again another screen:
Enter this code into MyApp to finish the process.

How can I avoid this? I would like to redirect directly again to my page?

Thank you for your help

Yes, that's correct. 

I recommend reading the OAuth Guide for a high-level reference of how this works.

The web-file-browser example app can show it working in an actual app you can run locally.

In addition to registering the redirect URI in the App Console like you mentioned, you should set the redirect URI you want to use in the code like DbxWebAuth.newRequestBuilder().withRedirectUri(...).build(). There's an example here.

Thank you, but should this be looking like with the 

HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response ?

How should my class looks like? And also my function?

Exactly how your web request/response handling code will look and work will depend on what web framework you're using, so you'll need to write the relevant code for your app.

I recommend trying out the working web app example for a sample of how this would work though. The instructions for running the examples can be found here.

Not sure how this will be implemented.

I have a simple HTML Button "Authenticate Dropbox".

This Button will be redirect to Dropbox, User will accept, and afterwards I got token and user will be redirect to my page...
