We're building an inventory tool that will read Dropbox information for a particular machine. Getting the Dropbox folder path is easy (get it from info.json), but the only thing I see in info.json pertaining to the user is the host ID. Or, there's the NS ID in the root folder.
How can I get the email address of the user who's logged in? Is there a way to resolve the host ID to the user's email? Is there a way to resolve the NS ID to the user's email?
Unfortunately, there isn't any official method for getting the email address from the desktop client, or resolving the host or NS ID to email address, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request.
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?
