Create team folder in business endpoint

Explorer | Level 3

I am trying to create team folder with Dropbox Business Standard plan in dropbox api explorer


curl -X POST https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/team/team_folder/create \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'\
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data '{"name":"test"}'


But it gives me following error
 
{
  "{   "error_summary ": "invalid_account_type/endpoint/.",
  "error": {
    ".tag": "invalid_account_type",
    "invalid_account_type": {
      ".tag": "endpoint"
    }
  },
  "user_message": {
    "locale": "en",
    "text": "You can’t create a team folder for this team"
  }
}

How can I create team folder and where it will be visible in UI?

It sounds like your Business team is using the new team space and member folders configuration that some teams have access to. In that case, you shouldn't use the /2/team/team_folder endpoints anymore. You should just operate on files and folders in the team space instead, e.g., using /2/files/create_folder_v2 via the member file access featurePlease read the Namespace Guide for details on how this works.

Will this work in advance plan ? I will be able to create multiple team folders in advanced plan?

This isn't about your plan level (Standard or Advanced) but rather just about whether or not the team is using the new "team space" configuration:

If the team is using the team space configuration, you should just create folders in the team space, per my earlier reply. If the team is not using the team space configuration, you should use the team_folder endpoints. In either case, you can have multiple folders.
