Get filename for file uploaded with file_request_create

Get filename for file uploaded with file_request_create

Hi,

I have an internal website where employees can upload files to a link I generate using the dbx. file_requests_create api.  Is there a way for me to get the name of the file they upload? 

right now all the files are collected into a single folder and I can't correlate which file came from which request.  
 
When I create the url i get a ID.  Is there a way to use that ID to get the name of the file uploaded?
 
Or just anyway of accomlishing the goal of associating a file to a id.
Thanks

No, unfortunately there isn't a way of determining which file(s) were uploaded by which file request, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. 

I can't promise if/when something like that would be implemented though, so as a workaround you may want to change your setup to use a separate folder for each file request.
