Downloading, Getting metadata and Revisions of shared to me file

Downloading, Getting metadata and Revisions of shared to me file

NemiroViktor
Explorer | Level 3

Hello.
How I can get a list of revisions (and other data) of the shared to me file (Only a file is shared, not folder).

I uses the method client.Sharing.ListReceivedFilesAsync() for  getting the list of shared to me files. 
But all the methods (client.Files.DownloadAsync(entry.Id), client.Files.ListRevisionsAsync(entry.Id), client.Files.GetMetadataAsync(entry.Id)) returns the error 'path not found'.

You can use /2/sharing/get_shared_link_metadata and /2/sharing/get_shared_link_file to get the metadata and file content for a shared file, respectively, by passing "preview_url" as the "url" parameter.

The Dropbox API doesn't offer a way to list the revisions for a shared file like that, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.
