Re: General URL for many files from 1 shared folder

Re: General URL for many files from 1 shared folder

Hi, thank you Grek. K for your very helpful comment. I did not look at the 'get_shared_link_file' and yes, it can fix my current problem. I am sorry for jumping to an early conclusion reconfirmed that the solution works.

Just a little question: Is there any way to do the same for 'folder'?

@duckladydinh No, unfortunately there currently isn't a way to download a whole sub-folder from a a shared link for a folder via the API, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though. 

Note that you can download the top-level folder as a zip from the shared link as documented here, but that doesn't provide a mechanism for downloading a specific sub-folder.

Update: The Dropbox API now returns the shared link for the nested item as 'url' when requesting the metadata for that item using the "path" parameter on /2/sharing/get_shared_link_metadata (instead of the original parent link). You could use that to download a specific sub-folder.
