File downloading by the link

File downloading by the link

I develop the product that uses dropbox api. I am needed in api that can help us. I was searching in all internet but did not found anything. Do You have functionality that can allow me dowload files or they revisions by something link? I know about API https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/download. But it is not quite that what i need.

I want to download the file by link if i have permission and i authenticated on the website.
Or maybe any api of downloading that uses Basic authentication.

For example: 

I have my dropbox account and i want to download file from my account by not use download button (Screenshot_1.png)

Somwthing like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/home/Sample%20Folder?download=333333.docx

The Dropbox API doesn't offer a way to get a download link that uses the web site authentication quite like you describe, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.

Thank You! Will be better to get API of downloading documents, that will use the basic authentication instead of website authentication, if you will develop this functionality.
