Sharing multiple Dropbox folder using OAuth

Sharing multiple Dropbox folder using OAuth

New member | Level 2

Is it possible for us to share more than 1 folder using an OAuth token on a user's Dropbox account?  Currently, we are instructing our customers to name a folder they want to share with a specific folder name, and then our app connects to that folder and allows an access token to be generated for that folder access.  Could we have multiple folders shared, each with their own token?

Unfortunately, Dropbox does not offer the ability to grant an access token access to specific folder(s). The Dropbox API currently offers two app permissions: "app folder" and "full Dropbox". Access tokens for apps with the app folder permission can only access the special app folder created for the app in the connected account. Access tokens for apps with the full Dropbox permission can access anything in the connected account. You can find more information about the different permissions here.
