Mounting shared folder after adding new members

Mounting shared folder after adding new members

yangf
Explorer | Level 3

I am currently developing an app with the Dropbox (HTTP) API and am adding new members to shared folders (/add_folder_member). From my understanding, the accompanying (/mount_folder) request requires an access token from each the new members? Is this (requesting an access token from each new member) the only way to automatically mount these folders for these new members (e.g. have the shared folders appear in their Dropbox)?

That's correct. You can add folder members using just the source account (this is essentially "inviting" them to the shared folder), but to actually add or "mount" the folder to their accounts (which would sync it to their devices), you would need authorization to modify their accounts, via access tokens for each one.
