Dropbox will drop support for its API V1 on 2017-06-28. After that date, all apps using API V1 will not be able to sync data to Dropbox server.
In ATracker 8.70, we have replaced Dropbox API V1 with API V2, as Dropbox uses a different token to validate user’s account, there is some manual interactions required.
If user has Dropbox sync enabled before upgrading to ATracker 8.70, after upgrade, app will disable the Dropbox connection automatically and show a popup message inform user that Dropbox API has been upgraded.
User can then enable the Dropbox sync again in ATracker, it is recommended to use “migrate data” option. But if user has all data synced to Dropbox before, “delete local data” will work as well.
There will be a Dropbox validation form popup and ask user to allow ATracker to access its service. The process is same as enabling Dropbox sync at the first time.
Dropbox only changes the API it uses to upload / download files. All ATracker data and ATracker backup stored on Dropbox are still backward compatible.
Sorry for the inconvenience! We have tried to make the reauthorise automated in our dev build, but found to ask user to start it manually eliminate the data corruption due to Dropbox API upgrade.
Updated: We have user reports that in some case user need to have a native Dropbox app installed to make the sync authorisation work. If Dropbox cannot authorise ATracker data sync via Safari, please install the Dropbox app on your device. We will contact Dropbox support on the difference on authorisation process difference via Safari and Dropbox app, and try our best to smooth the process on ATracker side.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
