Hi,

 

I am trying to revoke the token when we trying to logoff the dropbox from my android app.

it always showing some error.

 

eg:

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/auth/token/revoke
and set the header as "Authorization: Bearer <access token>"

 

it would be fine, if you provide the correct url and how to use it android.

You don't need to use DbxRawClientV2. You can use tokenRevoke on DbxClientV2 like this:

 

DbxClientV2 client = new DbxClientV2(config, ACCESS_TOKEN);

// note: be sure to add error handling
client.auth().tokenRevoke();

And if you're using the SDK, you don't need to construct the authorization URL yourself. There's an Android example here that shows how to process the flow in the SDK:

 

https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-java/tree/master/examples/android

 

Specifically, you start the flow using startOAuth2Authentication:

 

https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-java/blob/master/examples/android/src/main/java/com/dropbox/c...

 

And finish it in onResume:

What error are you getting?

There's an example of calling that endpoint via curl here in the documentation:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#auth-token-revoke

By the way, if you're building an Android app, we recommend using the official Java SDK:

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/java

In the Java SDK, you would use the tokenRevoke method to revoke a token:

Thanks Greg.

 

I used 'DbxClientV2' for getting files and folder list.
Never used the 'DbxRawClientV2' in my application and it seems DbxUserAuthRequests expecting 'DbxRawClientV2'  object as parameter.

 

For authentication, i used android native webview control and used the following url.
For eg: https://www.dropbox.com/oauth2/authorize/?client_id=<clientID>&response_type=code&redirect_uri=<redi...>

And it gives the Accestoken and then set it to the 'DbxClientV2' for listing files.

How can i use the 'DbxUserAuthRequests', please help.
