Ver 7.1.1 dropbox

what happened to dropbox integration it use to be here is this another undocumented feature:
Explore > Setup > Integrations > Dropbox Backup
I see I can manually create here but why go back:
explore > setup > integration service

Hey all can we stop changing things without documenting the changes and worse hiding the once obvious?
By chance I put dropbox in search menu bar to troubleshoot a new install and what do you think I found “Dropbox Settings”
That of course led me to the need to manually add the key and secret to site_config.json a different step from the very prominent integration link that existed in the past version under “Integrations.”

These steps illuminated this great nugget below I am posting below so others can know about this…

Steps to enable dropbox backup service: 1. Create a dropbox app then get App Key and App Secret, Login - Dropbox

  1. Setup credentials on Dropbox Settings doctype. Click on Dropbox Settings top right corner

  2. After settings up App key and App Secret, generate access token Allow Dropbox Access

  3. After saving settings, Enable Dropbox Integration Service and Save a document.

After enabling service, system will take backup of files and database on daily or weekly basis as per set on Dropbox Settings page and upload it to your dropbox.

This is all well and good had I known that this document existed it did not come up in my forum search for dropbox so what I did was go to the sparsely published documentation and specifically the link below which has been my guide for previous version where there was no reference to the change hence my post:

Thought this was working but I was wrong when I click take backup button here is the error:

i agree 100% with the previous user on all of the points. would be nice at least to know what to expect, or what will break of these updates or changes.

I too have the same problem / error as above with the Dropbox backups / failing and also get the same error if i do Take Backup Now

please help

Hi @ermalc

It’s fixed via [minor][fix] path fixes for manual dropbox backup by saurabh6790 · Pull Request #2234 · frappe/frappe · GitHub

Kindly update the ERPNext, it will be OK.


ok here we go again went to bench update to “fix” and yet another issue please, please can we just get some consistency here and not push features to production that are not ready for primetime…

I must have reinstalled this product over 50 time wiping vms and reload just to get a product I can actually use:

This is really troubling we have not attempted to customize anything we have just used the erpnext app to configure our site yet I had to stash both frappe and erpnext in apps to get bench update to work???

why is this happening not very conducive to have to jump through hoops everyday just to get a working application???

Having the same exact issue, error pops when trying to do update.

Since I had not customized anything yet I was able to do a “git stash” on apps/frappe and apps/erpnext. then bench update worked.
Take a look here on some suggestions that might help you.
