Finding parent folder of file

Hi Support,


I want to find parent folder of files. Currently, I am using list_folders api using curl in php which gives me all data but I am unable to differentiate which files are under which parent folder. 


Please suggest me way to find that

Re: Finding parent folder of file

The response from the list_folder endpoints will give you a list of file and folder entries. Each one will contain a `path_lower` value, which will be something like: "/Documents/document.docx". You can see the parent path components by splitting those out. E.g., in this sample, the "document.docx" file is in the "Documents" folder.
