Asynchronous Actions

When you send an asynchronous action to HPE Dropbox Connector, the connector adds the task to a queue and returns a token. HPE Dropbox Connector performs the task when a thread becomes available. You can use the token with the QueueInfo action to check the status of the action and retrieve the results of the action.

Most of the features provided by the connector are available through action=fetch, so when you use the QueueInfo action, query the fetch action queue, for example:

     /action=QueueInfo&QueueName=Fetch&QueueAction=GetStatus

Check the Status of an Asynchronous Action

To check the status of an asynchronous action, use the token that was returned by HPE Dropbox Connector with the QueueInfo action. For more information about the QueueInfo action, refer to the HPE Dropbox Connector Reference.
