Commenting on files in API 2.0

Kirill Z. New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I would like to know if there's a way to comment on files with the API 2.0 . I can't find anything on this in the API docs. Am I not looking in the right place, or is commenting only a feature available via the web app?

 

If it's the latter, and API doesn't support commenting right now, is it something that's in works and might be available soon, or is it not even on the roadmap?

Thanks!

No, unfortunately the API doesn't expose any commenting functionality, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when it would be implemented though.

If I cannot comment, can I then at least disable comments so users do not use this feature on files? Either during upload or after.

The API doesn't offer the ability to disable comments on any particular file's shared link, but I'll pass this along as a feature request as well.

Note that there is a 'viewer_no_comment' access level you can set for members for shared files or shared folders, but that's separate from general shared links:
