Team Folder Vs Shared Folders

Team Folder Vs Shared Folders

omrika
Explorer | Level 3

i have to account 

1. team Folders UI

2. shared folder (NEW UI)

using the Dropbox C# SDK .

On the team folder account I manage to get all of my folders from the List_Folder | List_Folder_Continue requests.

When trying to retrieve the new shared folders from the same request they does not appear. They appear only in the shareing.ListFolder request and they are missing Path_lower and Path_Display parameters.

Just for the clarify my company is doing data migration from Cloud to cloud and Dropbox is one of the Top 4 user are using.

I am trying to get the user hierarchy but the new shared folders are doing me a big mess.

Please need you help Greg.

It sounds like you're referring to shared folders that have been shared with the account, but which have not yet been added or "mounted" in the account. The SharingUserRoutes.ListFolders and SharingUserRoutes.ListFoldersContinue methods will list all of the shared folders the user has access to, whether or not the folders have been mounted. If the path values are missing, it indicates that the shared folder is not mounted.

The FilesUserRoutes.ListFolder and FilesUserRoutes.ListFolderContinue results will not list shared folders that have not been mounted.

You can find information on how to add or "mount" a shared folder in your account using the Dropbox web UI in this help article:

https://help.dropbox.com/files-folders/share/add-shared-folder

On https://www.dropbox.com/share/folders , folders that are listed as "Not added" are not currently added or "mounted" in the account.

If you do see a shared folder in the actual file/folder listing, e.g., under your purple member folder, that means it is mounted.

I'm not sure I understand the question in your most recent comment though. What folder are you referring to? Did you intend to add a screenshot?
