Getting multiple folders' permissions in a single request

Level 3

Is there a way to list multiple folders' permissions in a single request?

Using `list_folders` I can get the list of all shared folders has access to. Using `list_folder_members` I can get the list of all users and groups that have access to a given folder. Using `list_folders` is a little better since I can get all folders the user has access to, but it doesn't tell whether the user has access to a given folder via group or his/her inividual account. To find group permissions, I need to call `list_folder_members` on each folder. Consider I have 100K shared/team folders, I would need to make 100K requests to`list_folder_members` to list folder permissions.

No, there isn't a way to do this I'm afraid, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

Apparently, 90 percent of the questions I have asked so far was sent as a feature request of which none will be implemented!

 

Thanks for responding though!
