Webhook notification not sent when new file is shared to an account

New member | Level 2

Hi. I would like to get notified (via webhooks) when a file is shared to an account. I get notified for everything except this. Is it possible? Thanks!

No, unfortunately Dropbox webhooks aren't sent for sharing events like this, e.g., when a user is given access to a shared file, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though. 

Dropbox webhooks currently only get sent when there is a change the actual contents of the connected user's Dropbox account. This would include when something changes in shared folders that they have mounted in their Dropbox, but not when a file is shared to them, since that doesn't get added to their Dropbox file/folder listing.
