Getting BoxDotNet or Generic Authorization

Nov 18, 2011 at 1:44 PM

The API has changed along with some of the providers.

How does one get through the authorization process for box.net now? They are using a token system like Dropbox now.

Also, if we want to use the GenericNetworkCredentials with a username and password on one of the other providers, how do you call the cloudStorage.Open(config, credentials) ? It doesn't accept credentials anymore, just tokens.

Code examples would be helpful, thank you.

Hi,

first the GenericNetworkCredentials are tokens, so you can use them directly. Currently it depends a little bit on the provider which token you can use. In this blogpost I described whiche token can be use with which provider:


Sorry but it is very different how the vendor realize their security subsystem.
