Aliyundrive Open, using the official authorization API development.

Read the precautions carefully

  1. The refresh token obtained by this tool can only be used for Aliyundrive open platform storage mount method

  2. The token filled in when Alist is mounted should also be provided by this tool, and the previous acquisition method will not be available

  3. Not applicable to others, but only for Alist

  4. If the same IP requests unknown times within unknown minutes, Too Many Requests will appear. 🚫So please do not abuse🚫

    • and viewing files and watching video downloads is not counted,The number of times and time mentioned above are dynamic~
    • New optimization: will only refresh the token when the request finds that the token is expired, update restart editing if the token is still valid will not refresh.
  5. Online playback video reminder: ExceedCapacityForbidden error, the capacity exceeds restrictions, implements restrictions, needs to be expanded or deleted unnecessary file saving space to save space,View details

  6. Do not share the Alibaba cloud disk publicly, and the account is prohibited from being accessed by multiple IPs. If the account is frozen after sharing, you will be responsible for the consequences After adding storage, please set up meta information and other measures in time to prevent the account from being frozen by {other people/crawlers} malicious [access/sharing],Other cloud disks also need to be prevented from being frozen/banned

  7. It is prohibited to use Alibaba Cloud Disk to build distribution services including but not limited to picture bed, software bed and video external link to video website playback, as well as some non-standard usage methods not mentioned above.

About Alibaba Cloud OAUTH verification API cannot be connected

  1. Since the original API is blocked by SNI, resulting in the case that cannot be connected, two new APIs are provided for use:

  2. You need to replace the OAUTH token link in the ALIYUNDRIVE_OPEN configuration to

  3. check the details: in new window

  4. Can I create an authorized OAUTH verification API by themselves?

refresh token

Go to: in new window

Get example graph

refresh_token can be obtained in the following two ways

Go to loginScan QrCode

Root folder file_id

The default is root, which displays all cloud disk contents. If you only want to display the contents of a certain folder, you can change it to file_id

Open the official website of Aliyundrive and click the string behind the url when you click into the folder you want to set, such as in new window

which is 5fe01e1830601baf774e4827a9fb8fb2b5bf7940


Client id,Client secret

Normal users don’t need to fill in the blank. If they apply for official authorization, they can also use their own to fill in. If it is blank, the default is to use the one provided by Alist.

  • If you use your own developer account, the Oauth token link must also be modified, and you must also use your own developer account ID and secret key to obtain the refresh token.

Rapid upload

  • v.3.22.1 version New add

It is Rapid upload. When adding the driver, you need to check Rapid upload to enable it. The premise of Rapid upload is that the Aliyun disk already has this file before you can perform Rapid upload, otherwise it is a normal upload.

Rapid upload calculates the sha1 value of the file (should be correct), you don’t need to calculate it, you just need to upload it and upload it, it will automatically calculate it for you and upload it

  • v.3.27.0 version enhanced Rapid upload: you can directly transfer files with 115 network disk by copying
    • The premise is that the file to be transferred from the Alibaba Cloud disk to 115 in seconds, 115 already exists, otherwise it is a normal copy task.
    • If you want to transfer 115 cloud disk files to Alibaba Cloud Disk in seconds, you need to turn on the Rapid upload option of Alibaba Cloud Disk, otherwise it will be uploaded in normal mode.

If you want to upload files using Second Transmission, it is recommended to build an AList locally on your home computer and add a Local Storage and Alibaba Cloud Disk to copy Second Transmission to save resources.

Remove way

If you don’t set it, it will be deleted to the recycle bin by default. If there is not enough space, you need to manually clean up the recycle bin. If you delete the wrong file, please go to the Alibaba Cloud Disk official website client to retrieve and restore it.

  • Trash: Enter the cloud disk recycle bin after AList is deleted, which will occupy the cloud disk space, but it can be retrieved if it is deleted by mistake later.
  • Delete: direct deletion will not stay in the recycle bin, and will not occupy cloud disk space, but if deleted by mistake later, it cannot be retrieved.
    • Note: Please do not disclose the Token obtained by your Alibaba Cloud Disk Open, If you accidentally leak it, please immediately go to Other instructions¹ to deauthorize, and then re-scan the code to authorize a new refresh token , at the same time, all the previous acquisitions will become invalid after the authorization is deactivated, so as to protect the security of your account

Drive type

You can choose the type of cloud disk, and you can choose a different type according to your needs. You can set it when adding a driver using AList of v3.25.1 and above. The default is the default type

  • default: Have Intelligeent level users default to Resource, No Have Intelligent User's default display is Backup

  • Resource: corresponding to Resource of the cloud disk

  • Backup: corresponding to the Backup of the cloud disk

If you don’t have the content mentioned above in your cloud disk, you need to log in to the Aliyun disk mobile terminal version 4.9.0 or later to see it

Livp download format

That is, the IOS live photo cannot be downloaded because the non-IOS system cannot parse it, and now it needs Jpeg or Mov according to your own needs

  • Jpeg: is the cover shown in the live photo
  • Mov: Long press the video screen of the live photo

Internal upload

If the server you deploy AList on is Aliyun ECS for Beijing area, turn on this switch to improve the upload speed. Do not turn on this switch for servers that do not meet the requirements, otherwise you will have problems with inability to upload.

  • Internal upload Can Alibaba Cloud ECS in non-Beijing areas be used? No, because Alibaba Cloud Disk is using object storage in the Beijing area

other instructions


AList only obtained cloud disk users (name avatar¹), (access file permission²) and (write file permission³), and did not obtain mobile phone number permission

Details can be viewed in two ways:

  1. Prompt when scanning the QR code to obtain the refresh token

  2. Open Alibaba Cloud Disk APP --> My --> Settings gear in the upper right corner --> Privacy Settings --> Authorization Management --> Click AList to view
    • If you don't use it, you can manually cancel the permission at any time

By default, the built-in player of Aliyun Disk is used - Aliyun Video Previewer

The video uploaded to the cloud disk will be converted into an H.264 encoded video stream through the transcoding service. (The good thing is that IOS can play... well, it should be like this)

  • For videos newly uploaded to the cloud disk, only the first 30s of the video are pre-transcoded by default. Full video transcoding is triggered on first playback. The transcoded video will be cached, and re-transcoding is not required to trigger playback again.
  • Videos shorter than 30s will not trigger pre-transcoding, and will only start transcoding when they are played for the first time.
  • Real-time transcoding takes some time.
  • The picture quality are: LD|SD|HD|FHD|QHD

Q: Why can’t Alibaba Cloud Disk Open see files of the Office Family Bucket type?

A: Because Aliyun disk has not opened the relevant API, it is temporarily unavailable to view (please look forward to)


Q:Unable to play Alibaba Cloud disk video online, prompt: ExceedCapacityForbidden error

A:User capacity exceeded, playback restricted, need to expand or delete unnecessary files to free up space,The prompts of the Alist and Alibaba Cloud Drive APP are as shown below


Q: How to load subtitles?

A: Aliyun Disk Open needs to use Aliyun Video Previewer player, and temporarily "Only support transcoding mkv-encapsulated srt, vtt text format subtitles"

  • Currently only supports transcoding eng, jpn, chi three languages, other languages will be lost

Q: View video prompts in alipan In the transcoding, please try again later and linger prompts in AList: failed link: failed get link: UserNotAllowedAccessResource:user not allowed access resource for violation
A: The representative account has been frozen (in the past, it was unable to log in directly), Please look at the red content on the top
