Get all content from a directory

Hello,

I am using dropbox camle component and I am doing a search peration. Documentation states that if query param is not set all the files of the defined directory (remotePath) will be returned.

But using the following uri I get no results for a directory that contains 3 subfolders

"dropbox://search?accessToken="+ accessToken+"&remotePath=/target&query="

It sounds like you're using a Camel component made by a third party. As that's not made by Dropbox, I can't offer help with it.

On the Dropbox API itself, the search endpoints don't support supplying an empty 'query' in order to list all files, so I can't say what the Camel component is supposed to work in that case.

On the Dropbox API, if you wanted to list all files, you would need to call /2/files/list_folder[/continue] with a path of "" and recursive:true.

Who's talking
