Is there an easy way to get a Dropbox Paper Doc URL given its doc id? 

 

I'm hoping to navigate to a specific doc in my browser using the information returned from 

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/paper/docs/search

It looks like the following works

 

https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/{{doc_id}}


I thought I tried that earlier but must have mistyped something. Apologies for the unnecessary ask.

Hey there @ajwaxman - glad to hear you managed to resolve your concern :wink:

 

I've moved your post in the Developers & API section of our Forum too in case you have any further inquiries or additions on this. 

 

Thanks for using the Paper API and have a lovely day!

While this works, note that it isn't officially documented with the API, so it may change and stop working in the future. I'll send this along as a feature request for an officially supported way to retrieve the URL via the API.
Need more support?
