Method Create_shared_link_with_settings

Method Create_shared_link_with_settings

Hello folks,

1) Is the method  create_shared_link_with_settings up to date? When I compare the settings with the settings in the front-end, it is not the same. For example the user can disable downloads in the front-end, while via API the user can set up only the viewer/editor/max access.

2) What are the possible combinations of "requested visibility" and "RequestedLinkAccessLevel"? When I use the value "editor" with any possible value in the field "requested visibility", the error "invalid settings" is returned.

Thank you in advance.

1) The functionality available on the API can sometimes lag behind the functionality in the product. The Dropbox API doesn't currently offer the ability to set a link to disallow downloads, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.

2) Apologies for the confusion. The 'RequestedLinkAccessLevel.editor' option for 'SharedLinkSettings.access' isn't supported for standard files. It's meant for cloud-based documents, such as Google Docs listed in Dropbox.

Greg, thank you very much for your fast reply! If every service/app had support like Dropbox, users would be in heaven.
