Dropbox Business API 403 Error : "team selective sync is not enabled for this team"

Dropbox Business API 403 Error : "team selective sync is not enabled for this team"

I am working on developing a dropbox business  app. I have gone through the process of setting up the app. When I try make the team_folder/create call, I receive this 403 Err:  "team selective sync is not enabled for this team".

How do I fix this issue? I have tried reading the Dropbox business documentation but cannot find the answer.

It sounds like you're operating on a Business team without that feature enabled, so you should just omit the "sync_setting" parameter on the /2/team/team_folder/create call. 

Also, note that if the team is using the "team space" configuration, you shouldn't use /2/team/team_folder/create anyway. You should use /2/files/create_folder_v2 to create folders in the team space root directly. You can find more information in the Namespace Guide.
