Uploading files to a shared folder through API

Uploading files to a shared folder through API

Hello,

 

How can I specify a shared folder path while uploading a file through API. When I pass my path as "/test/version1", it is by default going to my home folder of dropbox and creating the path there. So where can I specify my shared folder name (the folder shared by others).

 

Best Regards,

Dileep

@kamaldileep42 There are a number of ways to do this. Specifying the path itself, e.g., "/test/version1" as you mentioned, is one way, but, by default, that will only enable you to access shared folders inside your own team member folder. 

 

For more information on how this works, and documentation on how to access shared folders elsewhere, e.g., in the team space, please review the Namespace Guide, which goes over this in detail:
