Is follow possible and how to do ?

Case :

I have following folder in dropbox

Dropbox/antivandalisme-goals/ av120.pdf
                                                        av180.pdf
                                                        av300.pdf

                                                                              

Now i send an order confirmation to a extern user (our custumer)

Thanks for ordering :

Av120   2 pieces
AV180  4 pieces

 

When the customer click on the code, he can see the right PDF.

For example he click on the AV120 he gets the AV120.pdf

 

Question :

Is it possible to generate a link code by myself :

Av120  : Dropbox/antivandalisme-goals/av120.pdf

I want have the folders structure with variable the code of the product av120 and not the linkcode.

Hi there @aluke
 
Could you please elaborate a bit on what you’re trying to achieve? For example:
  • You mention “a link” and “a code” - Are you referring to a shared link by any chance?
  • Are you trying to structure this yourself or change the URL using a third party app?
Any additional info would be very helpful. 
 
Thanks in advance!

I want to keep the folder structure in the link

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/49wmvfv4aktaopg/av120_alusport.pdf?dl=0 

--> this is the result when i make a link on the file av120.pdf

the folder structure is :

https://www.dropbox.com/home/Raf%20Gregoor/alusport%20-%20klantenportaal/ALUSPORT/Manuals%20Alusport...

can I use this as link and add av120_alusport.pdf if is av120 or another Pdf when the name is different. I want to keep the folder structure in place of the https://..... that is only for one file.

I hope you understand what i mean.

Hello,

I'm not quite sure what you mean. 

In order for a file to have it's own unique, shareable link, a user needs to create the link on that specific file. 

You can do that either through the Dropbox UI or the Dropbox API (more complicated) by using the /files/create_shared_link_with_settings endpoint. 

Who's talking
