I am using Dropbox_User_Endpoints.

I am trying to access owner name of files which are shared to me(Received files).

As per document it should shows "owner_display_names" field but I am not receiving it.

api: https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/sharing/list_received_files

The documentation for list_recieved_files does indicate that the owner display names are optional return values; they are not guaranteed to be fetched (https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#sharing-list_received_files).

May I know the reasons of this field to be absent? 

Is it possible that I am not an admin and using user api's so I can't access team details? Or there are other reason for not getting owner info?

@mukund Unfortunately I don't have more specific information to share as to when 'owner_display_names' should or shouldn't be expected in the response. I'll send this along to the team to request more specific documentation on that, but I can't promise if/when that would be updated.
