Re: Turn off sending emails for add file member endpoint

Turn off sending emails for add file member endpoint

austina
Explorer | Level 4

Hi,

 

I am using the following endpoints :

https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/sharing/add_file_member
https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/sharing/add_folder_member

to share few thousand files/folders. This generates emails for each file/folder I have added permissions. I don't want emails to be sent when I add a member to a file/folder. How do I do this? 

 

Thanks,

Austin

You can use the "quiet" parameter on /2/sharing/add_folder_member to suppress device and email notifications.

 

The /2/sharing/add_file_member endpoint also has a "quiet" parameter, but that one only supports device notifications, not email notifications. I'll pass this along as a feature request for support for suppressing email notifications for that as well, but I can't promise if or when that might be implemented.

For reference, the Dropbox API now also suppresses email notifications when using quiet=true on /2/sharing/add_file_member.

Need more support?
