Getting the Latest Changes of the Files and Folders

Getting the Latest Changes of the Files and Folders

Hello Team,

 

We have consumed the Continue API this

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder/continue

 To get the latest changes of the Dropbox account,  but I am still confused what is meaning of 

has_more Boolean If true, then there are more entries available. Pass the cursor to list_folder/continue to retrieve the rest.

How can Get the latest changes to the Dropbox account if has_More value is true

 

if has_more is false then I Update the response cursor to our server to get the latest changes of the Dropbox it is working perfectly 

but when  has_more value is true then what is the Process to get the latest changes of the Dropbox account??.

If the response from /2/files/list_folder or /2/files/list_folder/continue indicates '"has_more": true', that indicates that there are more results to be retrieved, and so the app should take the "cursor" value from the response and call back to /2/files/list_folder/continue with that value as the "cursor" parameter. That new call will return the next page of results, and so on.

 

If it indicates '"has_more": false', that means there currently are no more results to be retrieved. You can still store the cursor and check back later though.

 

Please refer to the /2/files/list_folder or /2/files/list_folder/continue documentation for more information. I also recommend reading the File Access Guide and the Detecting Changes Guide.
