direct connect to api host using ip address is available?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi, I'm trying develop using dropbox's api.

 

Since our development environment, we're planning to send HTTP request using "IP adress".

such as , "url -x POST https://X.X.X.X/2/files/upload --header ....." instead of "url -x POST content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload --header ...."

 

 However, This trial seems to denied on your server.(Ip address is given by nslookup cmd)

 

 So I want you ask "Is there are any way to using your api with ip?" and "this method isn't allowed some security policy?"

 

thank you

No, unfortunately the Dropbox API doesn't support access using a direct IP address only, and yes, among other technical details, this is partially due to security features.
