Is it possible for an app to have both “Team member file access” and “Team member management”?

Is it possible for an app to have both “Team member file access” and “Team member management”?

When creating a Dropbox Business API app, I'm confronted with the following options:

 

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 3.38.32 PM.png

**Team member management** does not seem to include “the ability to perform any action as any team member”, and **Team member file access** does not seem to include “the ability to add, edit, and delete team members”.

 

For my purposes, I need both file access _and_ member management.

 

Is it possible to get both sets of permissions on a single app, or do I need to create two separate apps to accomplish this?

No, unfortunately it's not possible to register one app that can do both of these, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

That being the case, you will need to register two apps.

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 access various different pieces of team functionality from the same app.

 

You can find more information about the release in our blog post here:
