Use of Dropbox Chooser in Chrome Extension

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I am attempting to use a Dropbox Chooser in my chrome extension. However, when I click the chooser, I get the error: 

{"error": "Origin does not match any app domain"}

Since it's a Chrome extension, the chooser URL is as follows:

https://www.dropbox.com/chooser?origin=chrome-extension%3A%2F%2Fdlcgilocdofcgmdihihdcpfiohiiphpn&app...

 

Thus, the Chooser sees the origin as the chrome extension URL. However, if I attempt to add chrome-extension://[extension ID] as the domain in the 'My Apps' app settings on Dropbox Dev, I get the following error:

 

The domain name you entered is invalid

 

What can I do to make this work?

Thanks for the post. Unfortunately, the Dropbox Chooser doesn't support running from a Chrome extension, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request. Apologies I don't have better news!
