Downloading shared file gives me access denied error in Dropbox API

Explorer | Level 3

When I try to download a shared file, I get an access denied error.

 

The shared file is valid as you can see:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/kudtbi18mhweyua/courser_course_1460192882561.json?dl=0

 

But when I try to download it with a CORS Javascript call on the HTTP API endpoint (https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/sharing/get_shared_link_file), I'm getting a 409 shared_link_access_denied error.

 

Am I missing something?

This is still a problem. Publicly shared files result in shared_link_access_denied error. Example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u5zy53a56b1irpx/9434b6e0233d11e897274d5aeb549a34.cv?dl=0
