I have been using API1 to pull individual files inot Excel Power Query using the syntax below. Can anyone help with correct syntax under API2 please? My whole company reporting collapsed overnight. Thisiis my old path
DataModel is a folder at the top of dropbox not an App folder as you can't share those.
Really appreciate any help as not a developer so don't understand the detial of the code
Hi Mike, it looks like you were using the API v1 /files endpoint to download the file content. In API v2, the replacement is /files/download.
The standard way of using that endpoint is via a POST with 'Authorization' and 'Dropbox-API-Arg' headers, as shown in the example in the documentation in the "Request and response formats" section.
If you need to be able to just make a GET to it instead though, that is also supported by using the URL parameters documented
So, using the example you posted, that would look like:
Replace ACCESS_TOKEN_HERE with your access token.
By the way, I redacted it from your post, but since you initially posted your access token, for the sake of security, you should disable that access token. You can do so by revoking access to the app entirely, if the access token is for your account on the account security page. Or, you can disable just this access token using the API. You would need to then get a new access token and plug that in to your app instead.
By the way, if you need more time to migrate your app to API v2, we can offer an extension for access to API v1. To request that, please open an API ticket with the relevant app key(s).
