Helpful | Level 6

I see you can add properties to a file, is there anything availble for folders?

Sorry, sorted this. Should be 

 

List<PropertyFieldTemplate> p = new List<PropertyFieldTemplate>(){
new PropertyFieldTemplate("FieldName", "FieldDesc", String.Instance),
};

Re: Add custom metadata to folder

The /2/file_properties/properties/add endpoint can be used to add properties to folders, but only for user-owned templates. It doesn't support adding properties to folders for team-owned templates.

If you do want to use team-owned templates for this, let me know and I'll pass this along as a feature request.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm currently trying to create a Template using the NET SDK .FileProperties.TemplatesAddForTeamAsync

How do you set the property type? I'm using the following

List<PropertyFieldTemplate> p = new List<PropertyFieldTemplate>(){
new PropertyFieldTemplate("FieldName", "FieldDesc", new PropertyType().AsString),
};

When I use new PropertyType().AsString it returns null. Not sure how I should set this. Thanks

I'm glad to see you already sorted this out.

I also see that you are using team-owned templates, so I'll send this along as a feature request for support for setting properties for team-owned templates on folders in addition to files.

We don't have a separate public feature request tracker for the API. This forum thread serves as the reference for this request and I'll follow up here if/when I have any news on it.
