api status endpoint

api status endpoint

I am creating an app that uses a lib (rclone) to sync files from the dropbox api. But I eould like to test if the api is available (mostly this will be affected by wether an internet connection is present) before I start up rclone and direct the user to that interface.

 

Is there some url I could direct a request to in order to check if the api is alive and my software has internet access?

Preferably without having to autheticate against the api since this is handled by rclone and I would need it for this check.

Dropbox doesn't offer a URL for checking the status like this, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though. 

That being the case, you may want to just use a normal Dropbox API call, e.g., /2/users/get_current_account, but ignore any API auth error.
