I'm working on an app that only needs read access to its app folder, however I only seem to have the choice of read/write access to an app folder or the whole dropbox account. How can I restrict the app to only have read access to only its app folder?
If this can't be achieved with a normal Dropbox Pro account, can it be achieved with a Dropbox for Business account?
I just wanted to follow up on this to let you know that we've released "scopes" functionality on the Dropbox API, which you can use to configure an app or access token to only a limited set of functionality, such as the ability to read but not write files.
You can find more information about the release in our blog post here:
