Error When creating new folder in teams

Explorer | Level 3

While creating new folder in teams i am getting error, 

"error_summary": "invalid_account_type/endpoint/...",
"error": {
".tag": "invalid_account_type",
"invalid_account_type": {
".tag": "endpoint"
"user_message": {
"locale": "en",
"text": "You can’t create a team folder for this team"
Not able to resolve this issue as i am stuck at this place for this account and i am using team member file access. Please suggest a solution in HTTP and also in C# SDK i am developing with C#.

Re: Error When creating new folder in teams


It sounds like your team is set up to use the "team space" configuration, so you shouldn't use the /2/team/team_folder/* endpoints. To create a folder in the team space, you should use the /2/files/create_folder_v2 endpoint. That's CreateFolderV2Async in the .NET SDK. Please refer to the Namespace Guide for information on how to operate in the team space. You can set the the 'Dropbox-API-Path-Root' header in the .NET SDK using DropboxClient.WithPathRoot
