How to disable download from shared links using API?

How to disable download from shared links using API?

Hi everyone!

I have an app that auto-generate links for a bot I do have each 20 minutes using Dropbox.NET

The problem is that, no matter how hard I try, I don't find the way to disable downloads from that links (not manually, but using the SDK).

 

Any help?

The Dropbox API doesn't currently offer the ability to set a link to disallow downloads, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.

Hey @Greg-DB,

 

 I was wondering it there's any update on this feature. It'd be a great plus for client privacy, which is one thing really holding back the application of the API in my case.

Thanks,
Tanush

@yadavt No, unfortunately I don't have an update on this request yet.
