Retrieve access_token from Dropbox Chooser

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

In our app, we use Dropbox chooser to get files from Dropbox. But the files are downloaded in the backend, so we just send the url of the chosen files to the backend to do the job. Is it possible the retrieve access_token directly from the Chooser to avoid implementing the Authentication flow ?

I have already found a solution. We don't need neither to implement the authentication flow nor the access_token. Just make a HTTP(S) GET request with the provided link.
