File/Folder ID in DeletedMetadata

File/Folder ID in DeletedMetadata

Could the DeletedMetadata objects in the response to list_folder provide the ID of the file/folder deleted? This will simplify tracking so we don't require to store/update the path in addition to the ID.

This isn't currently possible, but I'll send this along as a feature request.

Hi Greg, do you have some news about this request? I am encountering the exact same issue as vinodc.

Hi Greg,

 

I am aware that this is still not available. Just wanted to add up and flag this as a feature that would really be useful for me too.

 

Thanks

Greg,

 

Following up to confirm that this would still be a valuable addition to the API. We're still having trouble identifying the exact file/folder that was deleted.

 

Thanks.
