Cannot Pull "Uploaded By" Property from Dropbox API

Cannot Pull "Uploaded By" Property from Dropbox API

Hello Support,

 

I'm having difficulty obtaining the "Uploaded by" property (as shown in the screenshot below) via the Dropbox api. Is there a particular function in the reference documentation I could use to pull that information? 

 

Thanks!

From what I can tell from your screenshot, it looks like you're looking at the web page for a shared link for a file. In that case, you would use /2/sharing/get_shared_link_metadata to get information from the shared link. You can find all of the information available from that endpoint in the Dropbox API documentation for it here. Note that the API doesn't always return the same information as the Dropbox web site.

Need more support?
