Working with Individual API and Business API endpoints?

Working with Individual API and Business API endpoints?

Explorer | Level 4

I am trying to look up all members of a team using the business API, and then identify the user's root field and download all the files. 

I've got each individual element working but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the business and user api's working in tandem. Any advice or documentation on this?

Re: Working with Individual API and Business API endpoints?

To use both the individual user endpoints and the Business endpoints for a connected team, you should use a "Dropbox Business API" app with the "team member file access" permission. You can register one here if you haven't already. (Note that Dropbox Business API apps can only be connected to Business teams.)

With that kind of app, you can use the Business endpoints for a connected team, but also call the user endpoints for any particular member of a connected team via the "member file access" feature

For example, you can use /2/team/members/list[/continue] to list all of the members of the connected team, and then call user endpoints like /2/users/get_current_account or /2/files/download for any particular member by specifying the member ID in the 'Dropbox-API-Select-User' header.
