Permissions / Scopes on API (View Folder + Download Only)

New member | Level 2

Hey guys!

I'm currently developing a small program for me and other users and would like know if there's a way to have an "Download Only + View Folder" API Token for my C# program? I'd like to restrict it to download-only + view folder for the app, so I can prevent people to screw around with the token if they ever would acquire it by chance.

Best regards,
Benjee

No, unfortunately the Dropbox API doesn't currently offer a way to get an access token with restricted scopes/permissions like this, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.

I just wanted to follow up on this to let you know that we've released "scopes" functionality on the Dropbox API, which you can use to configure an app or access token to only a limited set of functionality, such as the ability to read but not write files.

 

You can find more information about the release in our blog post here:
