Python API - Find out who uploaded file to shared folder

Python API - Find out who uploaded file to shared folder

Hi,

 

I've been looking through the documentation for the python API but I'm unable to find a function that will allow me to find out who uploaded a file to a shared folder. Does anyone know if it's possible to do this? I am able to see who uploads a file on the dropbox dashboard in a browser, so I assume this functionality must be here somewhere.. Any help greatly appreciated :slight_smile: Thanks!

You can get the account ID of the account that last uploaded the file in FileSharingInfo.modified_by. For instance, you can get that from FileMetadata.sharing_info as returned by files_get_metadata or files_list_folder/files_list_folder_continue.

 

You can get more information about a particular account based on an account ID using users_get_account.
