Download a file using the api

Download a file using the api

Hi, we have a problem to download from a file using the api.

At first we used method files/list_folder, and it works. But after we tried to download file from existing path by id:

https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/download

Response with error:

 {"error_summary": "path/not_found/..", "error": {".tag": "path", "path": {".tag": "not_found"}}} 

How it possible that method files/list_folder returns a path and id of files, but  files/download has an error.

We are using Dropbox Business Advanced.

 

Thank you for response.

The specific parameters and context for the API calls here likely matter, so we'll follow up with you in your support ticket to troubleshoot this privately.

Thanks for answer. We resolved the problem, there was missing Dropbox-API-Path-Root.
