Export API

Export API

I've been looking at the current API https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#files-export and was wondering if you could help

 

I assume this the endpoint I used to export Google Docs, Sheets etc?

 

I get the following error:

path/restricted_content/
 
I have the header Dropbox-API-Select-Admin set with the team admin id
Dropbox-API-Arg header set with {"path":"id:MY_FILE_ID"}
 
Am I missing something?
Thanks

That's correct, that's the endpoint you should use for exporting the content of files that can't be downloaded in the normal way, like cloud-hosted docs such as Google Docs.

 

That 'path/restricted_content/' error indicates that the file you're requesting has been flagged as restricted (e.g., for malware, DMCA, etc.). If you believe that the file has been incorrectly flagged, contact support for help:

Hi,
Thanks for the reply, the document is a google document with three lines of text?

Seems abit extreme
