Empty or Partial Response to list_shared_links

Helpful | Level 5

I was previously using get_shared_links to retrieve all shared links relevant to my dropbox. However this has started to return only a partial list of files. 

 

I've switched to list_shared_links (as get_shared_links is deprecated), however I have the same problem, and when then trying to create a shared link for a file it does not include in the response, I receive a 'shared_link_already_exists' error.

 

My code is:

 

    token = 'mytoken'
    url = "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/sharing/list_shared_links"
    headers = {
        "Authorization": "Bearer " + token,
        "Content-Type": "application/json"
    }

    dbx = dropbox.Dropbox(token)

    r = requests.post(url, headers=headers, data=json.dumps({}), timeout=60)
    my_links = json.loads(r.content)

I'm aware that list_shared_links requires a path and will only provide the shared links within this directory (and not include files within subdirectories) however I am not receiving all of the files contained within the provided path (whether a path is supplied or not).

 

Is this an error on my side?

 

Thanks

Not sure what the problem was, but managed to solve by rewriting the whole thing using the python SDK.

Thanks
