Issue with missing_scope

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have set up rclone at a local machine and copy the config file to my rclone running on a server. However, when I try to access the dropbox folder, I kept getting error of missing_scope. I have turned on all the permission on dropbox. Can someone tell me what this error message mean? I have tried to search but haven't had any luck. Thanks

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone ls
rclone copy

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

rclone ls Dropbox:LS
2021/09/23 11:43:48 ERROR : : error listing: missing_scope/
2021/09/23 11:43:48 Failed to ls with 2 errors: last error was: missing_scope/


please post:

  • config file, redact id/secret/token/etc..
  • a debug log, add -vv to the command, run the command and post the entire output.
