Hi there. The API appears to support a webhook which is triggered when changes occur. However, it appears to trigger on a per user bases. What is the best way to get a notification on an added file, preferably on a per-folder bases.
I have no interest in who added/edited the file. I simply want to be notified when a file is uploaded (and to which folder it was uploaded to) so that I can subsequently download that file.
Dropbox webhooks unfortunately don't offer a way to register for notifications for specific folders, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.
The best thing to currently do is use the webhook notification functionality that is available, and then call /2/files/list_folder[/continue] when notified to see what did change, and just ignore any entries you're not interested in.
We love to learn from the educators who use Dropbox. Whether you teach kids, teens, adults or a combination of all three, we want to know what apps and integrations you use with Dropbox to help with teaching. Which of the ones below is your favorite, or most used tool?
