Unable to log in

Unable to log in

Explorer | Level 3

I applied for appkey on Dropbox developers. An error was reported when authorizing authentication.      "[DBClientsManager authorizeFromController:[UIApplication sharedApplication] controller:controller openURL:^(NSURL *url) { [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:url]; }];

"error message:

terminating with uncaught exception of type NSException

*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'FatalError', reason: 'DropboxSDK: unable to link; app isn't registered for correct URL scheme (db-03609z0wg843bb3). Add this scheme to your project Info.plist file, associated with following key: "Information Property List" > "URL types" > "Item 0" > "URL Schemes" > "Item <N>".'


We look forward to your reply

Re: Unable to log in


It sounds like you're using the Dropbox API v2 Objective-C SDK. That implements the app authorization flow redirect by using a custom URL scheme that you need to register for your app. In your case, based on the output here, your URL scheme would be "db-03609z0wg843bb3".


Make sure you've registered that in your app's .plist file, as indicated in the error message. You can find more information on setting this up the SDK in your app here.
