When I create a group in Dropbox For Business, does name have limit?

groups/create groups/update group_name and group_external_id fields, do they have up limit of characters?
 
According to our testing, group_name can be set up to 100 characters, above that will return 409 Conflict error code. if set group_external_id to around 600 characters, it will return 500 Internal Server Error.
 
Thank you, looking forward to hearing from you!

As you found, the limit for group_name and new_group_name is 100 characters.

 

I don't currently have a definitive limit for group_external_id and new_group_external_id to share though.

Thanks for the report! Yes, these do have an effective limit as you found, but it looks like they're not properly documented/handled on the API. I'll ask the team to fix that up.

Hi, thanks for fast response~

 

Is it possible that you tell me the limit here? We are integrating the API to our platform, is about to release soon!
