Thank your for your help.

If i only want to connect a drive to an existing account, is it necessary to create an application for this ?

Yes, for all REST API based access to a DropBox account, it is necessary to obtain an application key & secret.

Ok bruno.
But if i install the Dropbox client (very heavy) , it can acces to the drive without creating anything.

Is it the same for all the others clouds ? is it possible to connect a drive without creating anything ?

Best regards

All REST APIs rely on OAUTH and with OAUTH there is always an application key & secret involved. This is part of the OAUTH spec and our components implement this OAUTH spec. Again, this is a one-time step to get, as application developer who wants to use the DropBox service, this unique app & secret. After you got this app key & secret, you can build & deploy your app and your app can be used to access the DropBox account from users authenticating & authorizing in your app.
