We want to hear from you!

Back in September, we announced our new DBX Platform, a unified suite of APIs and tools for developers. The updates we shared were just the beginning of the improvements we’re working on for our community. We’re quickly ramping up our efforts and hiring several new team members across product, engineering, design, and programs.

As we plan for the future, we’d love to hear how you’re using the DBX Platform today and what we can do to improve your experience. Your feedback is incredibly important to us as we plan our roadmap.

API v1 Shutdown Details

As previously announced, API v1 is being retired on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.

On this date, API v1 endpoints will return a 400 error with this message: {“error”: “v1_retired”}. This means any integrations or applications still relying on API v1 endpoints may stop working.

If you still have not migrated to v2, check out the migration guide for more details.

We built API v2 to create a more consistent, simplified, and scalable platform for developers, and we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we make this transition.

DBX Platform launches with three new APIs

With your success, the platform has reached a scale of more than 2 billion API calls per day—and we’re just getting started.

Updated API v1 Deprecation Timeline

A little less than a year ago we announced June 28th, 2017 as the cutoff day for API v1. Developers have asked us for more time to finish updating their apps, so we have extended the API v1 cutoff date until September 28th, 2017.

Our goal is to provide developers with extra time to complete their migrations to API v2 and give users reasonable forewarning and time to respond to any dependencies on apps that have not yet acknowledged the API v1 deprecation.

Stack Overflow Documentation for Dropbox APIs

We’re excited to announce that we’ve been working with Stack Overflow on the launch of their new Stack Overflow Documentation.

We’ve created a dropbox-api tag to organize answers to common questions about the Dropbox API and provide sample code snippets that you can easily use in your app. For example, here’s a topic for sharing a folder with a few snippets of sample code.

We’re also looking for your help! Stack Overflow Documentation allows the community to add their own topics and samples and collaborate on solutions via comments and chat.

API v1 is now deprecated

Edit 06/23/2017: Deprecation timeline updated to match the one described in our recent blog post

As of today, Dropbox API v1 is deprecated. This includes both the user endpoints (a.k.a. the Core API), and the team endpoints (a.k.a. the Business API). In order to provide our developers with the most up-to-date features and support a single, consistent platform, we’ll be turning off API v1 a year from now, on 6/28/2017.

API v2 is built thoughtfully with a consistent design and adds new endpoints and features. Additionally, we’ve open-sourced our SDK generator,
