Copy allow_shared_folder issue

Copy allow_shared_folder issue

Charlie-RPA
Explorer | Level 3

I'm working on Copy API. I'm facing an issue for the 

allow_shared_folder parameter in JSON on post-call.
When I set the "allow_shared_folder" value as "false" It should copy file/folder to specified to_path and from_path as Shared Folder.
What is the problem?
Below is the result on Postman.

The "allow_shared_folder" parameter for the /2/files/copy_v2 endpoint doesn't mean it should make the copy at the destination in a shared folder or not. If you want to make a folder into a shared folder, e.g., if you want to share the result of the copy, you should then use /2/sharing/share_folder. After that, you can add members to the new shared folder using /2/sharing/add_folder_member.
