Sharing Photos

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi,

 

 

I have images in my dropbox. However the share link is different for each image. 

 

I need this images to be retrieved in a CodeReadr Website for the verification pupose.

 

I am using the Code and Image Source for retrieving the image.

 

Since dropbox share link has major change for each image it is creating a more more for preparing and uploading the data into CodeReadr Website.

 

For Eg. If there are two images with Names  Ram and Krishna. The Share Link will be as below.

 

 
 
 
Instead if it is generates like the below, it helps me a lot.
 
 
https://www.dropbox.com/s/e93mjtfg8v4q8qq/Krishna.jpg?dl=0
 
Only the File Name Should be changed and rest of the link should be same.

It's not possible to have Dropbox produce matching shared links for different files like this.

 

However, if you can write code to handle this programmatically, you can use the API to automatically create and retrieve shared links for files, using this endpoint:

 

https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/http/documentation#sharing-create_shared_link_with_...

 

Or, you can retrieve existing shared links using:

The /2/sharing/create_shared_link_with_settings endpoint only supports calling for one file at a time, but if the links are already created, you can list them in bulk using /2/sharing/list_shared_links.

Hi Greg,

I am not a developer. A normal user. May i get some support for retrieving the bulk shared links.

I see, thanks for clarifying. In that case, I'm afraid I don't have a solution to offer for this.

For reference, you posted this in the "API support" forum, which is meant for developers, but you may be better served in the "Sharing and collaboration" forum:

Truly disgusting. I have to have 256 links for different photos. As I signed  up without knowledge of the changes in photos, please refund my money for the plus account type.

I cannot believe the hours of wasted time.

Please refund me in total for 1 year.
