AppFolder absolute path

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

Hello,

I am using Dropbox application with `app_folder` permissions level. Lets pretend that my app folder is `TestApp`. I am creating subfolder `plant` in it.

Is there a way to get absolute path of this folder and to be able to show it to user? I can't use `/Apps/TestApp/plant` due to different localisations of dropbox. Some of our customer has localised name of apps folder, like `Программы/TestApp/plant` which is created by dropbox automatically.

Also I can not refer to https://dropbox.com/home/Apps/TestApp/plant due to same localisation issue.

When I use `metadata` API call it also return relative to apps folder path.

Anything other than relative paths will leak data to you about the current users platform and configuration, so I doubt that you can get that info.

Richard's correct, there's no way to do this. I'll send this along as feedback to the team, but for context, can you elaborate on what your app would use this for?
