Dropbox Transfer API

Hi there,

as developer of Dropshare (https://dropshare.app), I'd love to see an API for Dropbox Transfer (https://dropbox.com/transfer). Any plans for that?

Dropbox doesn't currently offer an API for the Dropbox Transfer feature, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.

Would love to see this feature - in my workflow I'm often generating transfer links for a large number of folders, would love to be able to automate this with an API.

Just want to say that this will also be highly useful for email client integrations, e.g. Thunderbird Filelink.

Given we are seeing spammers using Dropbox Transfer to host phishing files, API access shouldnt be an afterthought on a service like this.

 

We use the existing Dropbox API to check Dropbox files before releasing to end users.

 

Its not possible to do this with Transfer links so we are contemplating bouncing all emails that contain Dropbox transfer links.

Hi @Greg, any word on this? We could really use this feature as WeTransfer has officially deprecated their API.

@homedeck No, unfortunately I don't have any news on this request.
