Search v2 endpoint returns 500 internal server error

Search v2 endpoint returns 500 internal server error

I've using the following endpoint to retrieve files:

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/search_v2

this returns 100 entries and then get has_more = true and cursor.

I then user this for the following endpoint :

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/search/continue_v2

Everytime it returns internal server errror 500 with no error detail.

This also happens after requesting 3 pages using max_results = 50.

Can you please try again now and let me know if you're still seeing this issue? Please start again from /2/files/search_v2 to get a new cursor though. Thanks in advance!

Hey Greg,

it seems to be fixed, thank you very much.

 

In this API, is there an upper limit for acquisition per folder?

It seems that 10000 or more cannot be retrieved files.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for confirming that.

Yes, there is a limit of 10,000 search results. (I'll ask the team to clearly document this.) If you need to return many files like this, please use /2/files/list_folder[/continue] instead.
