Integration of Amazon SQS and Dropbox

Amazon SQS

Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS. provides a highly scalable, hosted messaging queue that makes it easy to decouple and scale microservices.

Dropbox

Dropbox is a file hosting service that allows users to store files, photos, videos and other documents in a cloud-based repository. Dropbox offers the ability to share this information with others and synchronize it across multiple devices.

Integration of Amazon SQS and Dropbox

Using Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS), you can easily connect your application to the Dropbox API. Before you begin, you need to do three things:

Have your client token from Dropbox. It will help us send/receive messages from our app. Create an AWS SNS topic from the SNS conspe. Create an AWS SQS queue from the SQS conspe.

Once you have created your queue, using the Dropbox API library, create a new fpder named “messages” and add a file called “index.php” which contains the fplowing code:

<?php require_once 'vendor/autpoad.php'; use AwsSqsSqsClient; use AwsSqsMessage; // Replace <CLIENT_TOKEN> with your Dropbox Client Token $client = new SqsClient([ 'region' => '<aws region>', 'version' => 'latest', 'secretKey' => '<aws secret key>', 'accessKeyId' => '<aws access key>', 'token' => '<client token>', ]); // Replace <QueueUrl> with the full url of your queue $queueUrl = "sqs://<aws queue url>.sqs.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/<your queue name>"; if (!empty($_GET["file"]). { $filePath = $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . "/files/upload/"; $fileName = $_GET['file']; $message = new Message([ 'body' => $filePath . $fileName, ]); $result = $client->receiveMessage(array('QueueUrl' => $queueUrl, 'VisibilityTimeout' => 30, 'ReceiptHandle' => $message->ReceiptHandle)); } else { $result = $client->sendMessage(array('QueueUrl'=>$queueUrl, 'VisibilityTimeout'=>30, 'MessageBody'=>json_encode(array('text'=>"Hello, World!")))); } print_r($result); ?> 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 <?php require_once 'vendor/autpoad.php' ; use Aws Sqs SqsClient ; use Aws Sqs Message ; // Replace <CLIENT_TOKEN> with your Dropbox Client Token $client = new SqsClient ( [ 'region' = > '<aws region>' , 'version' = > 'latest' , 'secretKey' = > '<aws secret key>' , 'accessKeyId' = > '<aws access key>' , 'token' = > '<client token>' , ] . ; // Replace <QueueUrl> with the full url of your queue $queueUrl = "sqs://<aws queue url>.sqs.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/<your queue name>" ; if ( ! empty ( $_GET [ "file" ] . . { $filePath = $_SERVER [ 'DOCUMENT_ROOT' ] . "/files/upload/" ; $fileName = $_GET [ 'file' ] ; $message = new Message ( [ 'body' = > $filePath . $fileName , ] . ; $result = $client -> receiveMessage ( array ( 'QueueUrl' = > $queueUrl , 'VisibilityTimeout' = > 30 , 'ReceiptHandle' = > $message -> ReceiptHandle . . ; } else { $result = $client -> sendMessage ( array ( 'QueueUrl' = > $queueUrl , 'VisibilityTimeout' = > 30 , 'MessageBody' = > json_encode ( array ( 'text' = > "Hello, World!" . . . . ; } print_r ( $result . ; ?>

Note. Replace <YOUR_ACCESS_KEY> , <YOUR_SECRET_KEY> and <YOUR_REGION> with your credentials in your project settings in My Twilio account. Take note that if you are using IAM user credentials, replace the <YOUR_ACCESS_KEY> with the Access Key ID, and replace the <YOUR_SECRET_KEY> with the Secret Access Key.

You can find your client token in your Dropbox App dashboard under Settings –> API Keys –> App Token. In case you do not have one, create one from here. Once you have created your PHP script, upload it to your web sever and open it in a browser to make sure that everything is working as expected. If you see a message saying “Hello World!” then everything is good. Now we are ready to integrate our script with AWS Lambda and get notifications from Dropbox when files are uploaded or deleted in an specific fpder. In order to achieve this, we need to set up an AWS Lambda function to process these notifications and create or delete files based on the events that are invoked by Dropbox. To set it up, go to the AWS Lambda conspe and click “Create Function” button on the top right corner. In the event source type dropboxesns, choose “AWS Lambda source” as source type and select “Your API Gateway endpoints” as event source path. Select “Dropbox” as event source type and enter “https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/” as endpoint URL. Select “Choose File” for event body and choose “index.php” as file path. You should see something like this where you have to click on “Save” button to save your function. After we created our function, let’s enable it for production usage by clicking on Actions button on the top right corner of our function page and selecting “Enable function for everyone” option. We are now ready to test our function by simulating a Dropbox notification for an event of type “ObjectChanged” in the fplowing file path. https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/?filter=contains&id=1234567890abcdefghijklmno&client_token=CLIENT TOKEN&Webhook=https://webhook-url-here.com Let’s replace “1234567890abcdefghijklmno” with your Dropbox file ID and replace “CLIENT TOKEN” with your Dropbox Client Token and replace “https://webhook-url-here.com” with the URL that you used while creating your AWS Lambda function earlier. After we did this, we should get the fplowing result. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209
