allow use of id: in paths for folder creation

Explorer | Level 3

While trying to build a app for dropbox I noticed that you don't allow use of folder ids in create_Folder_v2

 

For example like "id:asfd/newFolder" 

 

instead to create a folder you have to do it like this 

 

/parent1/parent2/parent3/newFolder

 

You guys have already implemented the use of ids in paths into other api calls so why not this one, as it would reduce the amount of string handling needed to be done by developers. Or have i just missed something that would allow the creation of folders in this way. 

 

Thanks Austin

Hey there @AustinJ1! Apologies for the tardy response - are you still having issues with this?

 

In order to bring this to the attention of other developers, I have moved your post from the "Share an Idea" section.  If you can provide any more information about your specific case in the meantime, it would be very helpful.

 

Thank you!

Thanks for the post! This isn't currently possible, so I've sent this along as a request for support for using ID-relative values like this for /2/files/create_folder_v2.
