So. I have a file shared via an email link. The URL is of the "/scl/" type.
Apparently, one can't download via API for this type of link.
I can't see how one creates any other type of URL link, but that's not my question. Actually, it is, it's Q1.
Q1/ How do I instruct third party how to create a share that I can sownload via the API?
Q2/ I have two options with this link - Download Direct and Download to dropbox. Download Direct is not working via API - everytime I want the "fresh" version of the file, I need to manually click on the link again and download it. If I download to dropbox, and the user updates the "real" file, will the version in my dropbox automatically update? Hoping against hope here.
Q3/ The URL seems to be "aware" of which account it's been shared with. What I mean is, I have a dropbox associated with my gmail account. The link was created and shared with my work email account (which didn't have a dropbox account at the time). The person sharing the file wasn't aware of my gmail account.
So now I've created a new dropbox account with my work email. If I click on the link, I get a message "soz, no access, you signed in as work account". So I sign out, sign into my gmail account, and I can download.
My question is: once I click on the file link for the first time and log onto dropbox, is the share now associated with just that account?
