.NET API AddFolderMember call

.NET API AddFolderMember call

Hi, 

I am using the following API call: 

AddFolderMemberAsync

but today I got the "rate_limit" exception. I am using the access token of a business trial account. I want to know what the rate limit for folder invitations via this call is (per day) and is there a maximum amount of Dropbox accounts this folder can be shared with ? 

Thank you in advance !

The AddFolderMemberError.RateLimit error means:

"The current user has hit the limit of invites they can send per day. Try again in 24 hours."

This is a limit on the number of invites that can be sent per user per day, not a limit on the number of accounts that can share a folder. There isn't a specific number documented though.

Hi Greg,
So is there you are not aware of the actual max number of invitations per user per day? Can you please tell me what is the max amount of users a shared folder can have and is that based on the dropbox account type (e.g. business, enterprise etc.) or is it hardcoded ?

We do not have documentation for the specific numbers for the amount of invites allowed per day or any limit on the number of members a shared folder can have, so I don't have any more specific information to share.
