CreateFolder V2 API

CreateFolder V2 API

I am seeing that CreateFolder V2 API takes at least 10 seconds.  So if you need to create 10 folders through the API you are looking at 100 seconds.  I see no way to speed up or an alternative way?

Thanks for the report. I just tried this and I can't reproduce this though.

How are you timing this? Are you seeing this for all users/all calls?

Also, note that if you're uploading files, you don't need to explicitly create parent folders first. If you upload a file to a path with folders in it that don't already exist, they'll be automatically created, saving you the step.

For reference, the API offers a batch endpoint for creating folders now:

Need more support?
