API v2 fileops/copy with from_copy_ref equivalent?

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

In v1 of the API if I wished to copy the contents of a file or folder from one Dropbox account to another, I was able to use the `filesops/copy` endpoint with the `from_copy_ref` argument in place of the `from_path` argument.

It seems as though there is no functional equivalent to this operation in v2 of the API. Am I missing something?

This isn't currently implemented in API v2, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.

Thanks – I understand the new v2 API isn't up to feature parity with v1. This particular feature is quite useful, and is essentially impossible to replicate in v2.

Gregory: Thanks! And double thanks for leaving a comment to that effect; I wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

I assume that this will be added to the Python SDK at some point in the near future, as well?

That's correct, these endpoints will be available in the SDKs in the next releases.
