Hi @jacky-radix,

😁 You haven't added any kind of webhook to your account. 🤫 It's impossible! Webhook is a way for an application to trace accounts activity (accounts that accepted to use particular application), so webhook can be added to that application, not to account. It's another story about did you accept your application to be used by your account? 🤔 It's NOT something automatic, if that's what confuses you, you should join your app through your account, as would be for any other account! Only joined accounts activity is traced. 😉 If there are no, joined accounts (or activity gets up on different account - non joined), no activities can come up to your webhook.

Hope this gives direction.

Hi, Здравко
Thank you for your reply.

I am not getting that, I have created one app in console and there is a field to enter a webhook url. So I have added that and enabled.

Now I want a notification of change on that URL.

Is it possible?

Hi @jacky-radix, just for clarification, are you using the Dropbox API when creating this webhook?

@jacky-radix As Здравко said, webhook URIs are registered for apps, not accounts. Webhook notifications will only be sent for changes in accounts connected or "linked" to that app. If you haven't linked your account to your app, you won't receive webhook notifications for your account. I suggest reading the OAuth Guide for information on how to connect accounts to your app.

Yes, in that way you have already registered webhook URL to your application (NOT to your account). As Greg mentioned too, only linked account(s) will be traced (including eventually yours). You have to do it explicitly; it's not done automatic. An easy way to do it is just link by hand (like described here, for instance). Once you linked your application to your account your application should appear in your used applications list (all applications, got access to your account, are listed there).

Hope this helps.
