Thank you Greg. I am pretty new to Integrate and my customer wants to integrate Dropbox with Servicenow application.

 

Prior to this i am trying to integrate with POSTMAN, i am trying to search for a Folder which is available in my Dropbox account.

 

I am getting "Error in call to API function "files/create_folder:2": Unexpected URL params: "path", "autorename""

Thanks! That's helpful. That error message is indicating that the API call failed because the endpoint doesn't expect those two URL parameters you supplied. 

The /2/files/create_folder_v2 endpoint is an RPC style endpoint, meaning that it expects the API call parameters to be sent as JSON in the request body, not URL parameters. Try removing those from your "Params" settings and put them as JSON in the "Body" instead.

I also recommend using the API v2 Explorer, as it can be very helpful in prototyping and testing out Dropbox API v2 calls. (Click the "Show Code" button to see how the code for a particular call should look.)
