What is the best way to detect a folder rename using the API?

I'm creating webhook.

Thanks

Hi Joel, the "id" for a folder will stay the same through a rename, so you can store the "id"s for the files/folders in an account, and then find the new metadata entries with previously known ids from the response of each further call to /files/list_folder/continue.
