How can I add file/folder meta data for an App Folder app via the API. I am getting this error:
Error in call to API function "file_properties/templates/add_for_user": Your API app is an "App Folder" app. It is not allowed to access this API function
Error in call to API function "file_properties/templates/add_for_team": Your API app is an "App Folder" app. It is not allowed to access this API function
We have also expanded permissions so that applications with Full Dropbox or App Folder permissions can create templates.
I'm develop Android app for backup purpose and I like store backups also on Dropbox.
I like store files into apps folder because I try respect privacy of users and avoid ask access from app to entire dropbox.
I need custom properties include to file metadata for increase speed of initial listing of files. That custom properties is for detailed describe of stored files.
But by doc pages "This endpoint does not support apps with the app folder permission." means for /properties and /templates.
Is there any chance to remove that restriction?
any news here please?
It will be really helpfull, when I can got metadata, just when I listing folder, because reading each file, which contain additional metadata is terrible slow.
