when a user connects Dropbox with OAuth2, we need to be able to query all their Dropbox Paper. How do we do that for legacy users who have been around before Sep 25 2019, without using the deprecated endpoints.
Right now, the only way to programmatically access Paper docs for users that haven't been migrated (i.e., not .paper files), is to use the old endpoints. While they're marked deprecated, they are still available to use for this.
Where would the .paper docs be migrated to, i.e. under which path?
I don't have specifics to share like this right now, such as the exact path(s) for migrated docs. Note that users can move around .paper files anyway though, so I don't recommend relying on them being under a particular path. You'll want to be able to handle them anywhere, e.g., by listing them using /2/files/list_folder[/continue], like you would with normal files.
How do I query for the .paper file contents? We need those to help our users with full text search functionality. The migration guide suggests /files/export but that endpoint seems deprecated.
To retrieve the content of Paper docs from .paper files, you should use /2/files/export. That's not marked deprecated though. Did you see it set as deprecated somewhere? Please let me know if so, so we can fix that up. Thanks!
