When a user presses a button in the internal software used by my company, I'd like to create a folder with a set of subfolders in Dropbox. I can create the folder and subfolders using the API, but I haven't been able to change the folder settings on the folders (some of the subfolders need to have different settings to the top level folder).
I use create_folder_v2 to create the folder and subfolders (this works successfully).
Then I use share_folder to try to change the folder settings:
It sounds like "/API Test folder" is a team folder, and "/API Test folder/test" is a shared folder nested in that team folder.
Since "/API Test folder/test" is nested in that team folder, it is owned and managed by the team, so you can't change the settings for the nested shared folder directly as a user via a Dropbox API app. (A team admin could change these via the Admin console or via a Dropbox Business API app using the "Dropbox-API-Select-Admin" header though.)
If you try the same call with a shared folder that isn't in a team folder, it should work.
We love to learn from the educators who use Dropbox. Whether you teach kids, teens, adults or a combination of all three, we want to know what apps and integrations you use with Dropbox to help with teaching. Which of the ones below is your favorite, or most used tool?
