I can get share files using https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder/[continue]

This API return me list of share files, But some how I am not able to downlaod this file using /download API. I mention path as ID.

I got response

{
    "error_summary": "path/not_found/...",
    "error": {
        ".tag": "path",
        "path": {
            ".tag": "not_found"
        }
    }
}

Can you guide me how to downlaod share file?

Note that the file metadata returned by "/files/list_folder" does not mean that those files are shared publicly.

Can you provide an example of the request you made to the "files/download" endpoint.  For example, what was the value of the "path" arg you tried to download?
