Hello, is possible to create file request via dropbox API? 

I want to create a plataform where each of my clients recive a File request link automatically and then upload their files.

Someone can give me a lead?

Unfortunately, at this time, there is no way to use the Dropbox API to create file requests and add members. You can only do so manually, via our web UI.

The Dropbox API now offers the ability to get, list, create, and update file requests:

If you're using an official SDK, there will also be corresponding methods for these endpoints.

A related question, in the API document it written that:

 

rate_limit Void The user has reached the rate limit for creating file requests. The limit is currently 100 file requests per day.

Does that make any difference if I use a dropbox business account? What's the rate_limit? Thank you.

 

We want to use the file request api in an dropbox app where we may create more file requests per day for lots of small files. Now we have to use Amazon S3 server to do that, would be great if we could just use dropbox file request api.

@Wei O. That rate limit is the same for all account types.
