Hi,

 

I used this api "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder" to get list files from dropbxx and i get this error "The remote server returned an error: (429) Too Many Requests." i didn't find any result about this issue.

Can you please describe why this issue happened and what is the solution for this issue.

 

Thanks.

Can you share the full request and response, including both headers and body? We can look into it for you. Please redact the access token though. Thanks in advance!

By url "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder" using Post request and post String {"path": "","recursive": true,"include_media_info": false,"include_deleted": false}, and Content Type "application/json" and the header "Authorization , Bearer (accessToken)"

Thanks! It looks like you didn't include the response headers, so I can't look into this specifically for you though. If you can share those, please do so.

Are you making multiple identical list_folder calls at the same time though? That can cause rate limiting.
