Login to system account for Dropbox not possible within SailfishOS

Login to system account for Dropbox not possible within SailfishOS

If I try to create a system account of Sailfish OS on my mobile phone, the web form of Dropbox for a login is shown. If I enter my user credentials and press enter, the form shown an infinite spinner next to the login button. Creating a system account worked fine in the past. This is, what I have done: 1. Removing the system account to create it from the scratch. 2. Removing Sailfish in my Dropbox settings. Has someone an idea?

Finally my solution is to create the system account from the gallary app of Sailfish OS. Select any image in the gallery and select the option for a new account in the list of sharing options. Then create a Dropbox account. For any reasons, this works.

Hey Perikles, thanks for checking in with us on our Forum! 
 
You may keep in mind that currently the Dropbox app is compatible with iOS 10 or later & Android OS 4.4 and up, though in all honesty I’m slightly curious on your current setup. May I ask which of the two available apps you’ve tried to install? This way I may pass your comments internally as a feature request. Let me know & well take it from there!

Hello Jane,

 

Sailfish OS as an alternative to iOS and Android offers a system account for Dropbox. This worked fine until I posted my message in this forum. 

 

Therefore I don't use a Dropbox app although it would be possible to run Android apps, which are compatible with Android 4.4 Kitkat. 

 

Sailfish OS has a deep integration of Dropbox, to make a system backup or store photos and video in Dropbox wihtin the default galery app. This is very convenient and my expectation of a real cloud integration. 

 

Currently I'm using Sailfish OS 2.1.4.14 on an Intex Aqua Fish.

 

I can see, that Sailfish OS is using the social login with the well known web form. Maybe there is a problem with the call back URL. Maybe I have to delete some cache, but I couldn't connect to Dropbox with a fresh Sailfish OS developer device, that hasn't a dropbox account before. 

 

Some user's report, that it is possible to login with a Google account. I didn't try it, because I have no personal Gopgle account and wouldn't connect the accounts anyway.
