Discuss Dropbox Developer & API
Faced a similar issue:https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-API-Support-Feedback/How-can-I-get-a-list-of-the-files-in-a-...
In this topic, @Greg-DB said that this problem was added to the feature request.
So, the first question is: how is it going?
The second question concerns my solution to this problem:I looked at traffic from your web application and used two requests from there.First, I parsed the cache from public link responce: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/<link_key>/<secure_hash>?dl=0Then I call this request: https://www.dropbox.com/list_shared_link_folder_entriesIt works, but can I use this method and can I be sure that nothing will change in its work? If not, how can I "legally" receive the information I require without authorization?
I don't have any news on that feature request unfortunately. I'll add this to that request, but I can't promise if/when it would be done.
As for the method from the web site, that is not officially supported, and is subject to change at any time. Third party apps should only use the officially documented public API.
