Get folder URL

Get folder URL

Explorer | Level 4

Hello!

 

In my application users can upload images to any folder of their choice. I want to add the ability to open this folder in a browser from the app. What is the appropriate way to get the folder URL? It is pretty straightforward when the folder is shared: the sharingGetFolderMetadata method does the job. But how can I get the link if it's not? Is it safe to just concatenate two strings ('https://www.dropbox.com/home' + folder.path_display)?

 

Thanks for your time.

No, unfortunately there isn't a good way to do this when it's not shared, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. We also don't recommend just using /home + the path, as that's subject to change.

Hi, I'm just wondering if this has come as a new feature yet, I'm trying to get a folder URL that is accessible by people that are already shared, but the link will not be available to arbitrary user who has the link

@ndkhaivn No, unfortunately I don't have any news on this request.
