Upload images from different devices into one dropbox account folder

Upload images from different devices into one dropbox account folder

Hello everyone,

Is there any way to upload images from different devices into one account using dropbox v2 API. I made project in app console and use Android sample from Github, but when I test my app it autentificates on personal dropbox account and upload images there. Can we use the 

startOAuth2Authentication

 method for one account from multiple different Android devices? Sorry for my bad English, I hope that someone will understand my quetion. Thank's in advance.

Kind regards.

The API was designed with the intention that each user would link their own Dropbox account, in order to interact with their own files. It is technically possible to connect to just one account. The SDKs don't offer explicit support for it and we don't recommend doing so, for various technical and security reasons.

However if you did go this route, instead of kicking off the authorization flow, you would embed an existing access token for your account and app. Again though, this is not recommended.
