My client has a partnership with a photographer who dumps images in a dropbox folder that is shared. It can be accessed through /sh/... link. For dropbox to work in our solution I need to be able to gather links to and download the images. I found the metadata/link API endpoint but that doesn't give me any possibilities to traverse folders or get urls to actual files? What use is the metadata/link endpoint if it's not possible to download a file using it?
I'm using a sampel app OAuth token to authenticate my requests.
The /metadata/link endpoint allows the app to get additional metadata (path, size, etc.) as well as individual links to files within the folder the link points to. To do so, call /metadata/link with the shared link as the link parameter, as well as the desired sub-path as the path parameter. Then modify and use the returned link to download the contents directly:
