Displaying Files of A Folder

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello,

I'm trying to display all files of a given folder of a team.

So, I set the dropbox api (full dropbox), authorized and made the call list_folders. When the path is "" it returns the files of my personal folder, but when I want files from a folder that other team members can see too it shows nothing... ex.: putting the path "/Sample Folder" for a folder called Sample Folder returns no files and no subfolders...

From your screenshots, I see that your team is using the "team space" configuration. By default, API calls will operate only in your private member folder, and not in the team space, so you won't be able to access that "Sample Folder" outside your private member folder by default.

You can configure your API calls to operate in the team space though, so that you can access its contents, such as the "Sample Folder" in this case. You can do so by using the "Dropbox-API-Path-Root" header. You can find information on how to use that in the Namespace Guide here:
